The vast majority of this trail is very easy, however, it can change in a matter of a few months. It can present deep rutting, especially in the spring, and some rocky terrain seems to have been exposed over the winter months, leaving shelves that were previously not there. There are no water crossings, however, you may encounter some deeper puddles in the middle of the trail. The trail mainly consists of dirt (brown and very red) with some rocky patches and a few shelf drops/climbs, but nothing over 12 inches in height. As a result, high-clearance vehicles are recommended.
