Trail Overview

Fun trail with soft sand (when dry) that snakes through beautiful forest scenery. There are some long straight sections with good visibility, which allows for higher speeds, but it is very transited, so be prepared to slow down and move to the side to allow oncoming traffic through. There are a lot of soft, sandy, cambered turns that are a lot of fun. The downside is that there are many washboard sections that can make the ride very rough depending on vehicle size/suspension setup.


Mostly soft sand with some slightly deeper sand sections, but easily passable with good A/T tires and 4WD carrying some momentum. Some uneven sections but nothing that will cause damage to the underbody as it's all soft sand.
