Trail Overview

This trail is a little more challenging than some of the more stock-friendly trails in what has become known as the Tar Hollow Trails of Vinton and Hocking County. This road is not maintained with some rutted, muddy, and off-camber areas. It makes for a great beginner trail if you're looking for some challenges. There is one section that is rutted and off-camber, putting you right up against a wall of dirt. This is still considered a legal road for licensed vehicles even though a lot of the locals take their SxSs and ATVs on it.

Difficulty

A minimum of 33-inch tires, a winch, recovery points, and recovery gear are recommended. Expect a couple of rocky sections and a tight, rutted, off-camber section putting the side of your rig very close to a dirt wall. With proper wheel placement, you can make it through with no body damage.

No problems, the trail was muddy but that is half the fun

Trail is not bad going west to east until the very end really off camber and rutted with a wall on one side. Would not recommend with rock sliders and more than the 2.5 lift and tires larger than 33

Trail looks pretty easy for most of it. There is the section referenced in the description as off camber that puts you into a dirt wall. There is a dirt wall, some exposed roots etc. unless a built rig, significant flex, and probably some body armor, you will likely damage the side that is against the wall or high centered. I did not attempt to pass this obstacle.
