Some parts might be challenging for beginners. There are some steep climbs or downs along the way. Totally doable for the adrenaline rush!

Stopped to camp at the Hideout area. No problems making it that far with stock 4Runner and a sissy driver : ) The camping area is an unmarked turn off to the right. First turn is a little more technical. If uncomfortable, go a tiny bit further and take the path up the creek bed.
