Trail Overview

This is an intermediate to advanced trail depending on the vehicle being used. There are multiple water crossings, logs, rocks, and steep-off camber sections. If you're using a full-size vehicle be cautious of narrow trail spots and low-hanging tree branches. Water crossings can be dangerous after a hard rain so beware and proceed with caution. Cell service is spotty but available on most of the trail. The trail is open year-round and can be utilized in both directions.


Potential deep water crossing at the beginning of the trail. Multiple mud holes on the trail that vary in depth but do not exceed more than 2 feet. There is also an off-camber section half way through the trail that could be dangerous for high-center-of-gravity vehicles, use caution when approaching this feature.
