Trail Overview

As you enter this ravine, you'll encounter large sandy whoops that will gradually disappear as the high walls of the ravine close in on you. Navigating the basalt boulders and sand washes will keep you craning your neck to see the next obstacle coming up. Parts of the ravine will fall into shade, causing shadows to be thrown onto rocks and ruts. Off-camber spots will require you to carry momentum to navigate around. Make sure you drive the trail in both directions; it gives you a completely different experience. Rock climbs become drop-downs, etc.

Difficulty

The large whoops at the entrance to the trail will taper down into a narrow rock-strewn ravine of fractured basalt. This trail is narrow and cannot accommodate vehicles coming in both directions. There are few spots to pull aside.
