Trail Overview

Steep off-camber narrow trail. Stock Rubicon was hitting the back bumper a tad. Potential for deep ruts in the middle section after climbing the steep beginning. Do not attempt after rain/snow. Steep climbs and descends. No lockers are needed on dry days. Some fun obstacles to climb and a cave on the way if you keep your eyes peeled. No trash-bin or toilets, pack it in & pack it out. Better to run with a friend. If you run this alone ensure you have all your recovery gear as it could take a while to walk to signal or a help.
