Trail Overview

Trail 2X at Redbird is the most difficult of the Badge of Honor Trails. You will start with a steep climb and then a very steep decline before you start working your way through numerous steep breakovers and deep mud holes. With any rain/snow the week before, this trail will become much more challenging. This trail will take 3-5 hours to complete on a good day but could take 6-8 hours depending on trail conditions and weather. This trail should not be attempted if you do not have 35-inch tires, lockers, and a working winch. You can exit the trail halfway through or stop for a restroom break at the shelter house before continuing.
