Rating on this is a joke. It’s more like an 8. SxS have tore this trail up bad.

Trail is deteriorated a lot so the rating is too low now. We made it about 1 mile from the top. It was still worth hiking the last mile. Damage would have occurred with a stock Rivian if we continued.

I’ve been on this trail 5+ times over the last 6 years, and it just keeps getting more difficult. Ledges that used to be 2 feet are now 3.5 feet and undercut. You need to have a good spotter and know how to pick a line. Strongly recommend 35s, good clearance, and a rear locker at minimum. Expect to drag your rear bumper on several obstacles. I dragged my current rig, a 2000 Suburban 2500 w/ rear locker and moderate suspension work, up the thing but just barely. High centered multiple times and got some new trail damage. Still a fun trail with a great view, but know what you’re getting into!

More aggressive trail than expected especially near the top. If you get to the looped part of the trail going counterclockwise up and believe that to be difficult, the path back down, continuing in the counterclockwise direction, is more challenging. Many ledges and a lot of loose rock. Worth the rewarding view at the top.
