Fun little trail. Took the kids in the rzr. There is only one technical spot with large boulders, but the trail bypasses it. The view from top is awesome. 4x4 is necessary, and higher than stock clearance is recommended

One of the best 4x4 trails I’ve seen. Highly recommend and I’m going back tomorrow!

Mostly dirt road, not a bad quick hike with decent views

Sandy trail with some boulder maneuvering. Stock rubicon handled it well but our stock 4Runner might need more clearance. Rock crawler sections available which we bypassed. Saw heavily modified trucks enjoying those sections though. Just wish it was longer!

Great family spot for fishing at the trailhead too. Nicely landscaped edges where you easily setup your chair and fish for hours.

Go trail hilly sandy if you wanted to take a few hard climbs with your rig you can but you better have larger tires. Cool view of the airport at the top. Stock Toyota Tacoma did well

great views at the top. Simple hike with a few steeper parts, but overall manageable. It was pretty dusty, but well worth the hike. takes 30-35 mins to get to the top

This trail is so much fun! We loved some of the views and a lot of fun bouncing and well maintained trail.
Definitely glad we had some clearnace but no real boulders or rocks. There are separate sections you can take a vehicle with big tires up on rocks too if you want.
Overall a great trail!
