Difficulty

The large ruts will test your flex and 4WD's teamwork. It's got off camber ruts with mud on an uphill grade. It's not for a first time beginner.

History

On the hilltop straight behind the uphill west entrance to the FSR 127A, there is an old cemetery called the Hildreth Cemetery.

This keeps the 4/10 because I had to get out and check lines and got properly stuck in the mud and had to bust out the traction boards. Very little risk of damage if you know what you’re doing. Bring traction boards.
