Fun trail for off roading. My Toyota 4Runner is 2wd and it made it with no problem.

Very scenic and beautiful. At the technical part coming down, just follow the other tire treads with a spotter down below. Looks much worse than it is. We were in a stock Nissan Xterra.

Nice drive. Easy driving except for one spot with rocks. Trail washed out in the river bed & took some figuring out.

Fun road. But the Joshua tree side is NARROW!!!!! You will do some rubbing on the brush in anything decently wide. Was in a ‘17 tundra.

The trail is pretty washed out in most spots. Some spotting needed to get over a few things.

Great trail, fun time. It's easy except for couple spots. A spotter would be helpful.
You follow a dry river bed with sand & rock.

The first 7 miles was a nice easy ride for the family. Flowers in bloom!

Fun road for off-roading beginners. One slightly technical spot that you can drive around if you want, lots of soft sand & big dips. Definitely need high clearance. Take your camera!

Nice off road drive. We took our jeep out for the first time, to get the feel of her. There is only one technical spot. But what it lacks in technicality it makes up in beauty.
