Trail Overview

The Pickle features slippery, steep, and narrow obstacles not for the faint of heart. The Mashed Potatoes portion takes you over slick rocks and ledges and offers an optional extreme obstacle. Make sure to remain on the designated routes. This is a short but extreme route for experts only. Bring your winch.


Difficult: Obstacle #1 is a huge double ledge that requires expert timing with the gas pedal. Rollovers and broken drive shafts are common here. It has no bypass. Mashed Potatoes has a few short steep climbs.
