Difficulty

Up to Chilito Mine High clearnce vehicles can pass without issues. A few rocky spots and a couple rutted areas that are failrly easy to drive trhough. Once you arrive at Chilito mine if you choose to continue past this out and back trail things get a little tougher with off camber sections, tight turns, loose rock on a uphill climb. Defenitly recommend 4wd and good ground clearance should you choose to go farther.
