This trail was nuts. Super steep boulder sections. Long but the end was worth it. Coming back out was very strenuous and stressful. Don’t forget the way you came in.

We took our Artic Cat Prowler out on this trail and it was very steep and rocky at certain places. I’m surprised people bring their vehicles out and succeed driving this trail. We got to just about the end, about mile 11 and couldn’t get from one trail to another. It was so disappointing because we wanted to get to the water portion of the trail. It was a bit washed out and too narrow and steep to get up. We had to turn around and head back out. Very hot during the summer. Not much shade. Don’t think we will try this trail again.

This trail paid off at the end but it was rough to get here on a Tacoma. We couldn't take the four wheeler cuz of our doggie. The road goes bumpy, rocky, really rocky, sandy and rocky again until you hit the wash. It's a long drive just cuz u gotta go real slow. Once you get there tho it is very nice and secluded. We set up our awning (there's no natural shade) had lunch, and took our dog for a swim.

We’ve done this trail 5 times now. We have met many nice folks along the way. Some were on sxs and some in vehicles. The strangest thing we saw was a couple in a brand new stock Jeep with stock tires. We went back the next day to make sure they made it out. It is very rocky and steep on the last leg, but nothing setup vehicle would have problems with. The Colorado is 57f and a pleasure to swim in. You need lots of cold drinks and some food. Haven’t had bugs but early and late you’ll see a lot of fish.

Memorial day 2020. The trail is OPEN as it should be. What's better than being outside in fresh air during this crisis. No reason to close offroad trails in the desert. We rode the trail in 4 seat RZRs with no issues. I made the entire trip in 2WD. My 4WD was not engaging and I made it out over the roughest parts without any issues. We passed 2 jeeps and about 10 other SxS during our travels. The kids enjoyed splashing in the water to stay cool.

Good trail. Took 1 1/2 hrs each way from Boulder City. Washed out a bit but overall good trail. Did it in my 2010 4x4 Tacoma with 3in lift and 33s. 4x4 is a must if you are trying to go all the way down to the river. High clearance a plus.

Rocky. 3 of the 4 mostly stock rigs in our group broke front axles at moderate speeds. You do need to air down.

Did this in my RZR. Very mixed terrain, Trail starts out very whooped out for a few miles. Then gets very rocky with technical areas. Sand washes throughout the trail. 4x4 is a must. I seen all kinds of vehicles conquering the trail from stock Jeeps,land rovers,4 runners. To modded makes and models. Definitely bring a spare tire(s) for this ride, plug kit,jack, air pump. The sand washes have hidden rocks just below the surface and destroy tires. You can navigate the sand washes at high speeds if you want, but the hidden GOTCHA rocks will definitely get your tires/sidewalls. I used 18 plugs in a side wall of a tire that left some one stranded on the way in. Got her all plugged up and they finished the ride. The river at the end is well worth the ride. Take a dip in the water, very refreshing. Bring extra shoes, some sand areas in the water but rocky in places. An overnight camp trip would be good.

Great trail!! Washed out a little but no big deal if you take your time on some of the more difficult parts. I took my 2016 Tacome with 31" tires with 0 issues. Watch for sharp rocks and always bring a full size spare.
