Trail Overview

You can opt out of the most difficult section of this trail by taking the forest road the winds along the wash. An obstacle called "The Filter" causes many drivers to exit at that point. ATVs and UTVs may have a hard time in the wash, but unlicensed vehicles are permitted.

Difficult: Wash bottom is a mix of loose and solid rock with ledges up to 2-ft. high. Tires are often forced against sharp rock edges leading to sidewall cuts. Make sure to carry a spare. Standing water in places increases difficulty. 'The Filter' obstacle is primarily for rock buggies, but some vehicles with huge tires can get up by winching. Breakdowns and body damage are likely on this obstacle.
