Trail Overview

This is a one-way trail that you enter from the westbound lane of Interstate 40. The trail gets tight in many areas, there is not enough room to turn around. You will encounter steep drops on one side of the trail with a steep bank on the other. There are water crossings and tight twisty rocky trails. The scenery is awesome and there are a bunch of other trails nearby

Difficulty

We encountered a few places where a spotter may be required. Slippery rock with steep embankments that will cause rollovers if the incorrect line is chosen. Most of the trail is fairly easy except for a few minor spots, where slippery rock due to rain.

Trail was definitely wet today. It felt more like a 5/10 to me. I think ruts/lines are getting deeper as time goes on. Last obstacle towards the end - large rock on left - steep drop on right is especially dicey. Struggled through with 33s and rear locker, puckered. A couple other places with a lot of flexing.

Big ahh tree fell right in front of us. Missed that thing by 10 seconds. Located at the end of the trail right after that wicked hard last obstacle. Ain’t no way you getting past that without an axe or maybe ratchet straps to pull it and break it.

The creeks were high, but normal after rain. The trail was soft but not rutted and washed out. Beautiful water falls and old rock walls along the way. Took us 3hr 40 min, just poking along.
