Great 4x4 for beginners. A couple of minor tricky spots but nothing to worry about. Make sure to check where you are on the app, a couple of turns you can miss easily. The view at the end of Watson Peak Road is 100% worth the journey up there!

The trail is amazing, but if you want to drive your rig there, the map isn't accurate. Take the fire road I believe it's 73 or go further up Bunker Dr through the green gates and it'll take ya there. Beautiful drive, though
