I'm an inexperienced "Off-Roader" who wimps out easily. I wouldn't even call this trail Moderate, more like Easy but fun. Took wife, 4y/o and dogs in the T4R for a scenic drive outside of St. Elmo. Got out to run the dogs and get in the creek. Back in the truck for a bit of "off-roading" toward the end and it was fine. Didn't go all the way back due to time but fun enough for a wimp like me. Quiet and scenic fall colors too!
