Nice views, not very challenging. Narrow, better for a Jeep than a truck if you are worried about scratches. Saw some random cows along the way.

Great trail! If you are looking for something challenging this may not be it but still offers a lot of fun Terrain. Starts off sandy as you enter then gets rocky for a little while allowing you to practice squeezing between rocks. Highly recommend for anyone wanting to enjoy beautiful nature and some off road driving.

Good trail, I have a 2.5" lifted jeep wrangler on 35's and it made it just fine. Good to get into some rock crawling.

Great trail, no people. Terrain equal parts, sand, rock, and there's even a few "extra credit" obstacles. We had a caravan of a Land Cruiser, 4 Runner, and Jeep Wrangler. It was prefect for all of us!

Nice trail that is decently moderate. It is a good trial for a new off roader looking to learn his rig. We made it through in my daily driver a Toyota Tacoma TRD

This was a fun ride. I'm a novice off roader and handled it ok. A couple spots proved tough but not impossible. We saw some of the domestic livestock(bulls) walking around. Kiddos thought that was cool. Tight spots if someone is coming the other way. All in all a fun ride.
