This is a beautiful trail that runs through a canyon. I took my lifted 86 4Runner and my friend brought his stock Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon. Neither vehicle had any problem completing the trail, but the Jeep did use it's skid plates in a couple locations. Great trail for any skill level.
Tips: There is one difficult part of this trail: the waterfall. Going North-to-South I actually completed the trail in 2wd with a rear locker. Ground clearance may be an issue for some stock 4x4 vehicles, but most aggressive stock 4x4s should be ok (4Runner, Wrangler, Cherokee, Xterra, Tacoma, Land Rover, FJ, etc). As always, never travel any trail with only one vehicle.
A very scenic trail with high walls on both sides. Single track in many sections for some ATVs and most UTVs so go slow and be mindful of blind corners. A simply trail that families in a Rhinos would greatly enjoy. This trail branches into many great systems and we used it to get to Martinez cabin. Even though there were many people on the trails, it never feels crowded because the trail system is so extensive and diverse for easy to mid-level riding.
