Good trail if you’re just looking for a quick loop to flex your suspension on. Ran the loop in a jeep jku 3” lift and had plenty of room to spare. I don’t believe this trail should be marked as “hard” though. There are only a few features that require 4wd. (50 feet combined total.) Tons of birds and greats views to enjoy. As mentioned before, jeeps are great for the trail, anything too long could damage bumpers on some of these dips.

90% of this trail is accessible any vehicle with moderate clearance if you follow the loop counter clockwise from Jump Creek. There is a portion of the road that goes through someone's property but there is a marked detour around it. The other 10% is risky. Jeeps can do it well. Pickups might dig their bumpers into the ground and probably couldn't make some of the turns at the top of the rock.

Beautiful country and views. I failed to read the hard/ difficult rating. The rating is certainly accurate. About 1/3 of the way through I had my passengers get out because my front wheels were in the air. (Lava rock on a steep climb was a bad mix). We all made it out alive, but only by he grace of God. This was my fault for failing to read the rating, but know it has surely earned the rating it has.
