Difficulty

Easy. Fun mix of twisting, undulating, banked dirt roads. Prone to washouts and ruts, but typically suitable for stock, high-clearance 4x4 SUVs and pickup trucks. Side roads vary from easy to very difficult.

Washboard
Open to licensed vehicles, no atvs or dirt bikes, but there are trails dedicated to those. Easy drive, no need for 4WD or high clearance. Might want to air down to stay comfortable for some of the washboarding.

Perfect spot to air down once you pull off the pavement. I went solo and ended up taking some cool side roads. Turned around a couple times as I don’t have a winch (yet). But the main path is easy. Cool little free camp spots throughout but you’re not too deep in the sticks yet. If you get stuck and need help, you could walk back to the staging/airdown area or just ask one of the fellow campers on your way. Using the onX app was a life saver to me as I went out kind of late and didn’t have a ton of extra time to explore and the multiple side roads can easily lead you astray if you don’t pay attention.
