Basically, a well maintained fire road (some wash-board section). It traverses Walker Ridge and is a "loop" trail, not meeting up exactly at the start. There is a four-way "intersection" about a third of the way in. It's a well maintained dirt road, but not really a 4x4 trail. There are however lots of smaller dirt trails that branch off of Walker Ridge road that are 4x4 worthy. If you want more of an off road adventure, try taking one of the smaller trails that turn off of Walker Ridge road.Show more
