Just did this trail today with my dad for the first time in a stock 2016 4x4 tacoma and it was awesome. You definitely need high vehicle clearance to get over the rocky sections but for the most part its not bad at all. Lots of places to stop along the way and explore the rocks, saw some petroglyphs and the old dam with the owl graffiti. would recommend if youre in vegas with your 4x4

The description for this trail is mildly misleading, it is a point to point trail. the desc. says 22+ miles in and back, but if you go 22 or so miles, you come out on the North Shore rd of Lake mead recreational area.... So we would label it as a point to point. took about 4 hours to conquer. It is aggressive in spots, but easily done with our Stock Rubicon. definitely a high clearance 4x4 trail though. lots of cool views, and several areas to set up camp. we would highly recommend to anyone looking for an adventure.

Fun off-roading course which has options to rock scramble or dirt hills to climb with your 4x4s. Some parts could be too narrow for larger vehicles. My stock 2019 Wrangler Moab edition did an awesome job! I just went by myself and didn’t really need a spotter. It took about an hour and 45 minutes with some breaks in between. 45 minutes from Vegas strip. I will be back for more!

Great rocks to crawl on for beginners. 4x4 high clearance vehicles only if you head off the main trail.
