The is one of three difficult trails you can ride one after another for a fun, challenging day of off-roading. Green-sticker vehicles are welcome, but there should be an experienced driver behind the wheel to make it.
We've heard two stories as to why some call this trail Dishpan Springs. One is that it is simply named after a natural spring along the trail. Two is that, before the bridge was built over Deep Creek, the crossing was so deep that gear, including dishpans, floated out of open vehicles. We'll let you decide if either is true.
