Trail Overview

Zig Zag Trail is a fun OHV trail in the center of Zig Zag Road. It climbs / drops (depending on the direction of travel) over 600 feet in half a mile in a tightly forested, undulating two-track with thirteen switchbacks. It is signed as a trail fit for MX, ATV, and short-wheelbase 4x4 vehicles. This trail is NOT suitable for low-clearance passenger vehicles or full-size, long-wheelbase 4x4 trucks.

I did this trail in my stock 4Runner and had a blast. There’s a couple of sharp turns and lots of up and downs, but nothing too technical. I wouldn’t do this trail in a car longer than a 4Runner, such as a long bed truck or with a trailer. There are too many sharp turns.

Fun little section of the trail. Narrow and has several bumps that may require high clearance vehicles only. Trail is clearly marked with a sign as such.

Muddy/Wet
Besides being a little muddy on this day, there were some downed limbs. Not an issue. I went up from the south end and found it smooth going. There are some rollers that necessitated hi-clearance to prevent turtling. The switchbacks are tight but my JLU cruised without having to stop and correct.
