Trail Overview

Plan on a long approach to the start of this very difficult trail (via trail 70, 74, or 75). This challenging Maze trail rewards riders with exceptional views of rock spires, including the "Doll House" clusters at the end of the route. Camp overnight for stunning sunsets and sunrises and enjoy a hike to the Colorado River. Make sure to read up on Maze area regulations.

Difficulty

Difficult. Several sizable rock ledges with tight maneuvering. Soft sand in washes. We did it in our stock 4-door Rubicon using very careful tire placement. Some backcountry driving experience is recommended.
