Trail Overview

Very scenic drive with a great view and access to the nice creek to cool off in on hot days. This trail is very mild and friendly to all high clearance vehicles up to the first water crossing, although it would be more difficult when wet. After the water crossing, there are some narrow spots with ledges exceeding 2' to climb. Heavily modified vehicles or great spotter and tire placement recommended from the creek on. There is some small pull-off at the crossing to pull off and hike further down the trail.

up to the first crossing this trail is very mild with only a few steep grades. It could easily be more difficult after a heavy rain. After the crossing however the trail easily jumps to 7 is only for 2 short obstacles.

Broken Down Vehicle
There is a truck broken down with what looks to be a broken ball joint about 1/4 mile into the trail. They are working on getting a tow out. You can get around it however it is a bit tricky and you will need high clearance.
