For the most part an easy trail with some steep inclines that aren’t a problem. However the final section by the reservoir has some steep declines that could be tricky. 2003 Jeep TJ

Fun (moderate) trail that mostly provides easier passes. 2-3 difficult mandatory hills made the day more fun! Got to try out some of the 4runner off-road features. Great view at the top. Tip: On the reservoir side, avoid the last hill by taking a right @ 6N08. Easy way down. Stock 2019 4Runner TRD Off-Road

This trail is fairly easy. Theres a few tough spots but they have bypasses for the most part. I managed all of the toughest parts in a completely stock gladiator Rubicon.

Stock 2014 ford f-150, very challenging uphill climbs! luckily I'm a damn good driver & kept up with a jeep group with ease. Also more of a winter trail.

the first half up from Sierra highway is likely doable in most stock 4x4 with good all terrain or better tires. the back half near the reservoir, gets very difficult due to a couple of spots. these spots are probably easier going down that direction towards the reservoir, than up, but i wouldn't do either unless dry. the hills are rutted, sandy on top of hard rock, and steep. On one of the hills on the back half towards the reservoir you will find the remains of a truck that didn't make it. there's also a sudden, steep, uneven, rocky, drop. basically 12 feet of really sketchy terrain. take your time, find the right line, and remember it's slick so go slow. by the time you reach this area, there's no going back. definitely roll over or getting stuck territory. 99 4runner, 32" tires, 3" lift, heavily modified

2019 Toyota Tacoma Off-Road 4x4 As you can see, we definitely got lost. The path to all the hills to cross to the other side was hidden. There is am opening before you hit the open field. After doing Del Sur, this was definitely harder. It was very rocky. You do get a lot of elevator. We do prefer going straight in the beginning instead of making a left at the 3rd rest post or so.

It was my first time here in low cloud and wet situation on the top. Not knowing too much what to expect I was surprised with some challenges I faced driving up. I have a stock 2019 Wrangler Moab with mud tires. Didn’t scratch anywhere but some uphills were intimidating. It will be good to go with a small group just in case. The top part was quite foggy and wet and couldn’t see clearly what’s ahead of me. When I started to descend down to the reservoir I met with a truck warned me about steep drop and slippery condition due to the weather. I decided to track back and follow the Sierra Pellona Motorway down to 5N18 Fall Canyon Truck Trail and this trail was a loop from where you started. This loop has enough gnarly conditions and great views.

This ride takes you along some of the easier routes within Rowher OHV. Along the way there are opportunities to try more difficult obstacles but they are optional. Rowher offers some nice views. If you happen to be out on the trail at night the silence is piercing.

Very peaceful trail with good views. Was in a Rubicon with 37s which made it a cake walk to do.

Closed as of 4/10 Not sure if it was because it previously rained 4 days straight and mud conditions or COVID 19 Been up before, fire road trail pretty easy in my 2019 off-road Tacoma 4x4. I suggest if not experienced take fire road back down. I took a very steep trail back and it was pretty sketchy but made it by luck! Seen ppl get stuck or damaged their goods.

Trail was closed on 03/18/20 According to the ranger every time they get more than 1 inch of rain the trail is going to be closed . But there’s another trail like 15 mins away which is open all year long .

Very fun trail, you can do this no problem with a Jeep JL Rubicon unlimited, a stock sport might be okay. Don't forget to turn on controlled descent in the end when you're going downhill!

Drove in three miles then walked in. Wasn’t too comfortable with my Tundra since it seemed wider than the trail.

This is a beautiful trail, you can stick to the main fire road, or you can challenge yourself. The views are fantastic, and you will find plenty of places to rest.

2000 Land Cruiser 4WD ATRAC 33", no lockers. 18PSI Honestly, I would think this trail would be a lot harder, going up wasn't that bad if you are an experienced driver. Parts of the trail was rutted out and steep, but mostly fire road. But going down towards Bouquet Reservoir is a different story, there is one section it was extremely steep and fill with ruts. It seems like if you don't pick your line carefully you'll flip. I opted out and took the fire road down.

Lots of everything and nice and cool at the top! Took the family out for a 4x4 ride in the Rubicon last week. Watch out for rattle snakes we disturbed one hiding in a pile of rocks. Also road it on my BMW F800 GS. Lots of single tracks to play on. Three ways to get into the OHV area two if you are on more than 2 wheels. Lots of elevation changes. From the top Texas Rock Climbing area is visible and looks like a little spec. One my two trips we saw hikers, dirt bikers, mountain bikers, 4x4 trucks, Jeeps and lifted rice rockets with ATV tires... keep a sharp eye out for on coming traffic it is a busy little track!
