great little trail. enough bumps and ruts to keep the kids interested and thinking we're 4wheeling, long drop off shelf road at one point where rock had fallen on trail was a little white knuckle with only about 5" to edge. Had lunch at the creek crossing which is a great spot. fun trip and will go back to try Jeep trail off shoot.

Started off with rolling dirt dunes that any 2 wheel drive can access and then progresses into rocky terrain where 4 x 4 is suggested. There several large crevices that we had to conquer but nothing a stock FJ cruiser can't handle. Loose rocks and dirt on a slight incline with large grooves were are biggest challenge but a very fun trail that ends up in Idyllwild. There is a very scenic waterfall/river that passes through the trail at one point but it can be easily driven through.
