Trail Overview

The OHV trails here are extensive. You could spend days exploring this area. If you want a fun, challenging obstacle, try the canyon east of Squeeze Rock. ATVS, UTVs and dirt bikes will especially like this network of trails.

Difficulty

Difficult: Although most of the route is easy to moderate, the northern loop is extremely steep and narrow. Be very careful as ruts and washouts are constantly changing. Turn around if necessary. Modified vehicles are best, but a skilled driver can do this trail in an aggressive stock high clearance SUV.

Completed this trail in a couple full size Trucks. Most of it is doable but there are a couple spots meant for SxS. If starting on the southern entrance, the part where you turn off onto 3470 will be quite difficult due to boulder climbing and sharp turns. You can take P4007 as an alternate route to get north of this difficult hazard.
