If you’re looking to test your abilities on some decent grade hills with larger rocks then this is for you. We took an aftermarket UTV and had trouble in some areas and other areas I was nervous about driving on due to serious incline and larger boulders. We made it to the end, barely, but def took almost 2 hours one way. If you’re looking for moderate off road with a nice beach might I suggest Nelson’s landing or Aztec wash trail much more enjoyable ride with nice beach areas at the end and stock friendly. The beach area on this trail, my opinion, was not worth the serious terrain you have to overcome to get there. Would recommend to some serious Jeep guys but not to your average joes, like me, just looking to get to the water and hang out.

Great trail, definitely more difficult than expected at the end. Water was cold but good enough to swim and fish (well attempt to). Camped overnight and fire kept the bugs away for the most part. Did this with a stockish Tacoma TRD off-road...crawl control definitely saved us on the way out

Easy but rocky trail for the first 2/3 of the ride. Last 1/3 of the ride turns scary with washed out soft roads, steep drops, sharp rocks, huge boulders and uneven trails. Definitely a heart pounding ride for amateur drivers, like me. We drove a Can Am Defender Max. Rocks scraped the bottom in 4 spots going down but we were able to avoid them going back up. Towards the end this wildflower lined trail goes through canyons and narrow passages and ends at a beautiful secluded beach on the Colorado River. We had the beach to ourselves for a few hours before the next off-roader arrived. We saw a few people with boats, kayaks and rafts. Took about 1.5 hours each way, 3 hours total drive time. We spent a few hours at the beach and made it a full day trip. The beach has no shade and no facilities. Be prepared for that. Bring lots of water as the desert sun will take its toll.

what a trail! very rocky, and quite scary in some spots. very heavily traveled when we went as we probably saw 20-25 other OHV vehicles on the trail. we managed with a stock Rubicon, but would highly recommend some minor mods for this one. the later half is very rocky, with a few switch backs barely wide enough for a single rig. strongly recommend this trail if you want some serious off roading excitement. suggest traveling in a group as getting hung up is a real possibility. but through it all, if you make it over the mountain and through the canyon, there is plenty of space to relax by the river, quiet and peaceful. This is a MUST add for anyone looking for a high skill trail and a great adventure.

Attempted Burro Wash Rd today near Boulder City going SE to the Colorado River in my 09 Hummer H3. Some rocky areas that kept speed from 5 to 10 miles per hour. About the mid point on top of the hill got narrow with some was yours with barely enough room to get by and some steep accents/descents. At the 11 mile point the road was too washed out for my H3 to make but were plenty of side X sides that made it to the river the last mile & half. Beautiful views and was a nice drive
