Trail Overview

Pucker Falls is one of the longer trails in the area and offers several obstacles each with varying difficulties and optional lines. It has something for all hard and extreme capable 4WDs. It starts out as a sandy arroyo with boulders scattered throughout. The boulders get bigger and obstacles get harder. The trail features several v-notch obstacles that get larger is size. Bypasses are available on all the major obstacles. The exit, "The Great Escape" is a rather steep and loose climb up the side of the mountain. If you continue straight, past the exit, an additional boulder field leads you to a large undercut waterfall as to which the trail is named after. Yes, this waterfall has been attempted. You will have backtrack to take the exit but is worth checking out.
