Trail Overview

This trail is located inside the Barnwell Mountain Recreation Area, an offroad park located outside of Gilmer, Texas. This traverse through a short ravine (a little over a quarter of a mile) offers several technical areas with short but steep inclines. The trail has a few off-camber sections that will have you leaning towards some fairly near trees that could scrape along the top of your vehicle if you are not careful. The exit obstacle is a challenging uphill with two options to reach the main road (intermediate and hard) that could challenge any stock vehicle regardless of which path you choose.

This route is somewhat challenging. A high clearance vehicle is recommended. The trail is well maintained, but does contain several rutted areas and larger rocks (less than 18") to climb over.
