This difficult and technical 4WD trail should only be attempted by experienced drivers. It is passable with care by stock SUVs that have excellent clearance and good off-road tires. Additional lift is a definite advantage. The trail contains a long section of large boulders that twists tightly within the trees. However, the trail as far as Chokecherry Point is easier than the descent from that point to Utah 12. This steep descent has an extremely loose surface, making traction difficult. There are many rocky sections and some off-camber suspension- twisting ruts. It is easier to travel the trail from west to east, so that you descend from Chokecherry Point rather than climb up to it. Special Attractions: Extremely challenging 4WD trail; One of the few through routes on the Boulder Tops; Spectacular views as you descend down from Chokecherry Point. Skilled, experienced four-wheel drivers only. This trail includes very challenging sections with extremely steep grades, loose surfaces, large rocks, deep ruts, and/or tight clearances. Mud or sand may necessitate winching.

This is a rough and rocky 4WD / ATV trail, travel was slow and views magnificent. I was told we wouldn't make it but my 16 year old daughter got our RZT side by side up and back just fine following me on my 4 wheeler. Great trail
