Trail Overview

The Rolls OHV East Loop is an 18-mile loop of everything the Rolls has to offer. The route consists of a combination of easy, sandy wash roads, loose chunky rock roads, tough climbs that are steep and loose, views of desert flora, and an epic lakeside oasis along Saguaro Lake. Inclement weather and flash flooding may impact this route drastically. Monitoring conditions is advised. Pack out what you packed in.

Difficulty

The majority of the west side of this loop is easy-going, sandy wash road. However, the difficulty rating for this trail is earned by the two-mile stretch along the bottom "U" portion of the loop, in which several steep and loose climbs/descents with washout and erosion throughout are encountered. Extreme caution should be used, as rollovers are entirely possible with poor tire placement, especially in regard to independent suspension vehicles. Grades exceeding 30% may be encountered in some areas. The east side of the loop is a steep, rocky, loose, single-width route. Low range is highly recommended.

Great trail. Would highly recommend. Full disclosure - stopped about 4 miles in simply because we were doing casual exploring and definitely did not pack enough water, snacks, sunscreen, and gas. 4 hours seems appropriate for the whole loop. Will definitely be doing the entire thing next visit.
