Trail Overview

This route is one of the favorites of people from Marietta and surrounding areas. You start the trail at a covered bridge and then you follow Haught run from the end of County road 407 following the stream winding back and forth to the top of the mountain. This trail is high clearance only. Do not attempt with a stock vehicle and do not drive in mud holes you have not personally verified depth. There are some with rock-solid bottoms and some that are deep enough to swallow a rig on 40" tires with ease. There is a trail badge for this route from Off-road Exploration because it is indeed warranted from everything this trail throws at you. Creek crossings, mud holes, hill climbs, traversing through lots of rocks going up steep grades. Long vehicles will have considerably more trouble than short vehicles on this route. There is a video of 70% of this route on YouTube that I have linked below. This route would be considered a hard blue in difficulty almost reaching black status. Please do not go alone unless you are sure of your recovery abilities. Youtube video of Trail https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FGp9WP-8jtg

Overall fun trail following alongside a creek bed. Lots of of mud holes. We went after a decent rain fall so the water was definitely higher in some areas. Last little stretch has some good rocky hill climbs in it with large ruts.

Trail can easily be done with stock vehicles with 2" lift and 33s. Lots of water but nothing over the intake.
