I took my 1992 Toyota 4Runner out on this trial on 12/24/18. The trial has small ruts at the start that you need to find a line for. After I reached the fork in the trail I went left first and was given a much more exciting trail to go down and back up with a fantastic view, there were young men on bikes coming down the trail pretty fast so be carful! Once I made it back to the fork I went on the right side trial, this trail was boring and flat with some smaller rocks in the way during the turnaround spot at the end. Overall the trail is short and sweet, the left trial is much more fun for off-roading if you have L4 to come back up just in case, but I don’t think I’ll go out of my way to do this trail again.

should be listed as easy. flat dirt road that is pretty short, but the view at one end is great.

Elevation to only 400 ft so it was fairly easy. If you bear to the left at the fork you can extend trail for miles. Fabulous views!
