Difficulty

Difficult. This rating applies to just the last part of trail. The first 4 miles is easy and uneventful. After that, the route gradually gets tougher and more interesting. Left at Waypoint 02 leads to a network of shelf roads that are narrow for Jeeps but perfect for ATVs, UTVs and dirt bikes.
