Did a day and night run last weekend (12/3/17) in a stock 1997 Subaru Impreza Outback Sport. Although bumpy as heck, the majority of the trail was quite mild and very accessible to 2wd and factory height cars as we saw a Toyota Prius, Mini Cooper and Infiniti G35 Sedan among the trails as well! There are several "side quests/challenges" that would serve some 4x4 fun along with Holy Jim trail, but not so sure our little Subie could tackle it without a lift and some good rubber! Great trail for beginners and relaxed trail cruising!

Entrance is gated off from where this map takes you, but up the hill about a minute there is a small white cement wall with a trail leading to dreaded hill peak. Beautiful to watch sunset! About a mile hike up, which was pretty easy. Beware of bikers and rattle snakes!

Difficult both in grade and trail condition. The trail narrows considerably and becomes overgrown after about a mile, which makes it pretty difficult to navigate. The shrubbery encroaching on the trail wasn't very fun, and combined with loose scree and shale as well as a relatively steep incline in many places, it wasn't very friendly to hikers. I was 3.5 miles in after about 1.5 hours of hiking, and decided to turn around, so I can't comment on the rest of the trail. Side note: The Lazy W Camp Office sells day passes for $5.

amazing views, great hike once you get on the trail.

dirt road sucks getting there..3 miles of bumpy bump rocks and gravel
