Fun ride. Very washboardy though.

Great road for seeing Ernst Tinaja,old abandoned stone houses, gravesite,lots of animals,lots of history. The off road guide they sell at the bookstore at the ranger stations tell a lot of the stuff to see at exact mileage either heading north or south. We had an old Toyota Tacoma and did fine but a little rocky in 2 or 3 spots.

Vehicle 2018 Toyota 4Runner TRD Off Road Premium 265/70/17 BF Goodrich KO2's Stock suspension Sliders Front skid plate We took this road slow and it took about 4.5 hours to do. We stopped a few times to take pictures and enjoy the views. This was my first off road trail and it was a blast. I'd definitely say it's a 4x4, High Clearance road. Great views. More than likely you'll get some pinstripes on the side of your vehicle, however it's nothing a little buffing out can't remove. If you have side steps I would remove them, they'll more than likely grab and get damage/damage the vehicle if they get torn off. However this could possibly be avoided by taking a different line or stacking rocks. I hit my skids, but that was because of carelessness in a certain moment. I would say a stock 5th Gen 4Runner could make it if it has 4X4 and you remove the side steps.

I drove this trail from N to S in a stock 2004 Mitsubishi Montero. The trail opens with some steps down into the spring, which requires a very sharp left hand turn. I did most of the first 4 miles in 4 Low, but sections could be done in 4 High. The spring was very wet when I was there with a solid 100 yards of mud and water. It was not very slick or deep. The next 2 miles varies between open scrub and canyon descents. One of the descents has a somewhat steep drop on the left hand side and is wide enough for a full size rig, but not much more. Some of the descent has small steps and boulders that require some articulation, although not a huge amount. A few places showed signs of being washed out towards the cliff, which could provide pucker factor if wet. The short canyon with "the step" was the most challenging portion of the trail. The step had plenty of debris and large rocks underneath so I just crawled up. The climb out of the canyon was actually more difficult, as it had many off camber steps that more than maxed out the limited articulation of my Montero. The traction control system activated a few times on the climb and I had only two wheels of contact much of this section. The rest of the trail alternates between open scrub land and washes. This portion can be completed in 2wd, unless flooded. I only encountered three other rigs on the trail. The first two were looking at it when I started and turned back without trying. The last one was a father and son who were in a lifted 2wd tacoma at the end of the trail. They said they were driving it from the S so they could descend the step instead of climb it. I warned them that they could probably make it down the step, but I did not think they could make it back out. They chose to continue. I hope they turned back before the step, or through some miracle made it out without a tow.

I drove this trail from N to S. I drove it in a stock 2004 Mitsubishi Montero. This trail has many sections that are more of a desert pavement/washboard type surface than trail. However, there are quite a few stream crossings that, if wet, could make it more difficult. As I drove it in the dry, most of the trail was passable in 2wd with adequate clearance. Other than maybe two areas with some off camber boulders that require higher clearance this trail could be done in a Subaru. I drove most of the trail in 4 High, which is basically awd in the Montero. There were two sections where I used 4 Low, but would have been fine in 4 High or 4 High Lock. It was just easier with proper gearing. The views were good and offer a nice overview of Big Bend from a unique perspective. I enjoyed the overlooks and views of cliffs. I started the trail at 4:30 in the afternoon and finished at 7pm. I would start with enough time to finish before dark if I did it again so that I could see more of the park.

Did south to north from river road to glen springs. It was a great trip I underestimated how long it would take my girl had to stop and take pictures of everything. The last part of the trail was BiG Bend dark. I will return

Loved it- little sketchy in some spots for a full width vehicle but it was gorgeous.

Drove north to south with my son over Thanksgiving break. Very scenic and fun trail. Even though this was a busy time in park we only saw one other vehicle on the trail. A good test for my 16 yo son’s first trip in his Tacoma. I was driving my Raptor. No problems for either truck but Raptor is so wide plan on some pinstriping on the narrow sections. Only water was at Glen Spring at beginning of trail but it was minimal.

We did this in our new stock Tundra TRDPro. Put it in 4HI once for some super deep loose sand in a wash... probably could of made it with out it though. The truck came stock with these dumb drop down steps to get in the doors, and they did manage to scrape the rocks a couple times, but unfortunately they are still hanging in there. My husband had quite a few heart attacks with the encroaching mesquite bushes managing to scrape the sides of a full size truck, but other than that it was uneventful. Saw 4 semi wild horse escapees, a pack of javelinas, and one bobcat amongst many bird species. We did it the day after a hard freeze in November and only saw 3 total vehicles, two of which seemed to just go to the mine and then back out the way they came. It was a long slow day (if you care about not beating your brand new truck to hell), but would recommend it if you want to experience the remoteness.

Much longer than we anticipated. But worth it in the end, spectacular views at multiple points.

Did this trail following a night of heavy rain, and it was raining while we did it. We were concerned with washouts but it actually wasn’t as bad as I had initially thought it would be. There is listed as 1 creek crossing on the map. There are more likely 3-4 spots where water will be flowing during a rain storm - so be cautious of those during or following heavy rains. We made it through while there was maybe 4in of water running through them so no big deal. It requires 4HI at a half dozen points, otherwise 2WD would have made it through assuming a good driver and well set up vehicle. I am not a good off road driver, hence the 4HI at various points but learned a lot. Vehicle: 2019 Ram 1500 Limited with BFG K02s in 305/55/20 suspension set to Off Road 2 majority of the time.

08’ Range Rover Sport: Good warmup trail and great view at the end, but I would rate it Moderate once you get to the “gap”. It gets pretty narrow and rocky but I made it out scratch-free.

Awesome and my favorite off road trail in the park! 2 spots where it's an uphill rock climb, but can be done in 2WD. Took about 1.5 hrs in a Raptor stopping along the way, but any truck can easily make it.

Desolate area passing maybe 8 vehicles from West to East in about 3.5 hr drive. Did this is a Raptor, but saw average Pathfinder and Explorer. It's fairly easy, just rocky on the West since less traveled, but sure as hell wouldn't Minivan it! Props to those soccer dads/moms that made it through
