Trail Overview

This is a previously closed portion of the Sand Flats recreation area. It is a connector on the Hell's Revenge trail from Tip-Over Challenge to the main trail towards the entrance/exit. The drop-in is squeezing by a wall on the driver's side that has evidence of rigs getting too close. Once you get to the bottom of the canyon, you have the opportunity to take the bypass or climb the stairs. The stairs have two holes that require strategic wheel placement to avoid tipping as you climb.


The main difficulty of this trail is the consequences if the hole toward the top of the climb causes you to roll, it is a long way to the bottom.
