This was a fun trail that took us 1.5 hours in our new stock 4runner. There is a good variety of scenery including a nice ledge climb at the start near 191, some sandy sections, flat rock sections and a short hike to the bridges. The last few miles is a gravel road on the plateau. The first part required a bit of spotting by my wife but she said we weren't close to scraping anything.

Dirt biking- Cool trail, just very easy. Couldn't figure out how to see the arches from below- which would have been awesome. You can't ride over the bridges anymore- but I was fine with that bc I don't think I would have wanted to (considering there is a plaque there for someone who past away "doing what they love").

We took a left before you go up the hill and went on another trail (difficult). It was technical riding! We rode till there was a MAJOR drop down (no way I could get up or down- nor my husband), then turned around. That part was fun!

Easy off road travel. Quick walk from the road to the bridges. Don't be dumb and jump the gap between the bridges.
