Trail Overview

Kimsey Mountain Trail on Old Highway 68 is one of the most underestimated trails around. Travel this in the winter and early spring and you will find out what I mean. Every turn greets you with a new view of Mountain landscapes as far as the eye can see. You will want to stop and just gaze out into the neighboring mountains around every turn. Be sure your gear is ready on this trail, because you could very likely come across downed trees or other obstacles on this trail.

Easy road but definitely a 3 due to some spots. Beautiful views to enjoy. Expect to drive about 3 hours from one point to the other.

Great easy ride. Has some little sections that require more attention but mostly a pleasant drive with beautiful scenery. Could be done easily in any stock Jeep
