Trail Overview

From the Wipeout Hill Trailhead, there are (2) routes available. The route to the Right (East) and the Left (West) passages require greater driver skill and high-clearance 4x4s. However, the left (West) Passage offers this alternate route accessible with a stock 4x4. The terrain is mostly dirt with two 18" ledge obstacles accessible by stock 4-wheel drive vehicles. If you own a stock 4x4 and want to watch vehicles navigate Wipeout Hill, this is the least difficult route. This can also be used as the return route as it is lesser-traveled than the East or West Passages. Note: This trail will be extremely muddy after heavy rain.
