Trail Overview

This is a lightly traveled trail with a dirt floor. Uneven, rutted dirt trail with erosion. Potential water crossings up to a foot deep, in the winter, and in some spots the rut is 3ft deep steep grades. Roads are typically one vehicle wide with places to pass. The wet season sky rockets the rating as the traction diminishes greatly you'll find pine trees and manzanitia along the trail with some great spots to take pictures.

We went when it was snowing/raining and was more difficult than expected the main Rutt was large and was expected but with the rain made it more difficult and I have a Jeep wrangler JL with lift and 35’s and we almost got stuck but were able to make it out it definitely seemed like a cool trail to do when dry but be very cautious in your car and driving experience when wet, stay safe.
