Fun trail, took a stock DCSB 2016 Tacoma TRD off-road on it and took the truck to its limits. Plenty of high incline crawling, speedy washouts, and very deep mud in the lakebed. Took hits in the under body armor, and went quick enough in the washouts to bottom out the shocks. You can do the trail finding easier ways to get around though. All around fun trail, easy in a modified rig, much more technical in a stock rig like the one I used.
