Best to start it backwards, really steep.. this route will start you at 6N08 on Martindale Rd and there are some hard/moderate inclines but a stock Jeep did it. Everything else is mostly going downhill, nothing too scary.

OHV/Off-road drivingGreat!

Weather was perfect for a nice cruise in the hills. The staging area was packed but not much traffic on the trail. Just be careful of oncoming traffic. Rowher Flats is one of the closest OHV parks to LA so lots of beginners go here to learn. They often don’t know trail etiquette or standard hand signals. We did a few of the off shoot roads up top, no problem for our stock 2018 Subaru Outback with street pressure in the tires.

Finished the trail in a stock JLUR (its first trail) no spotter. For a newbie like myself the first few climbs were a bit intimidating but the Jeep handled them with ease (4LO + lockers). The main obstacle on the last descent before the reservoir gave me pause for a second but I somehow managed to scramble my way through damage free. Good dose of adrenaline for sure.

Well marked trail. Completed in a 4runner with 33’ tires and 3’ lift. Some steep hills, definitely recommed a 4x4 with some type of lockers. Saw a rolled over land rover discovery. Looks like it rolled multiple times down one of the hill climbs. Overall great trail. Only a one hour drive from LA!

Really nice trail! Aggressive incline and decline. But a little bit intimidating for newbies. We didn’t complete the whole trail but will definitely go again next time.

Scenic drivingGreat!No shade

This was my first time taking my Jeep Grand Cherokee on this Trail. It was a very hot day (104F) but we still managed to have a lot of fun. The views are amazing especially towards the end overlooking the reservoir. (See pic). The last obstacle., right before the end of the trail was extreme and I didn’t have the clearance to go over so we have decided to back up to take a different route. Overall great experience.

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.
