Trail Overview

The trailhead starts at the Sourgrass day use area and goes approximately 2 miles along the river, passing multiple group camp areas. The trail has a bypass for one difficult obstacle, and is a great beginner trail for stock 4x4s to get into the sport. Note, the trail is very short and is a dead end, so be prepared for oncoming traffic. The trail is for street vehicles only, please do not use green or red sticker vehicles on the trail.
