Trail Overview

The route begins in the middle of Cave Creek and is both USFS 217C and 217D. If you head up the left side of the trail there is a nice hill that offers some good rock climbing for the more mild vehicles. Once you reach the end of the left side, it opens up to a nice little fire ring accompanied by a good view through the trees. The right-hand side of this trail is a little less technical but still allows for some really nice off-roading. This side also has a nice area to set up camp.

A stock Jeep would do just fine. Be mindful of the washed-out ruts as they set the car a quite an angle.
