At first trail is in pretty good condition, later there is a lot of erosion, in some places mud, water up to 12 inches, in some places lots of rocks. Approximately in the middle of the trail there is big washouts and mud on a steep hill, very easy to roll over a car.

Fun trail but I can see other stock vehicles having a tricky time as my car has 9.5 inches of clearance and used my skid plate 2 or 3 times. Great views, and other than people shooting for target practice it was pretty empty

Lots of people out shooting in the beginning but trail is fairly easy some ruts not deep enough to cause trouble some water on trail no need for any fancy maneuvers or spotting
