Construction has poorly graded large portions of the trail. Some portions are off track on the trail due to new roads being added and the new addition aren’t on the map yet. It seems housing development might eliminate most the trails in this area in the future.

Once you get to highway 74, it’s chained off so you will have to turn back the way you came or go off on your own. I was using a stock 24’ big bend bronco and it did everything smoothly. I would say there were about 3 parts where it’s a bit rough but that’s about it. AWSOME TRAIL

Lots of pre-development going on along some parts of the trail, so I'm sure at some point in the future this area will be closed to off roading.
