A lesser-known but great hard-core trail. It’s popular during the Easter Jeep Safari because a guide is provided. The rest of the year people seem to have trouble finding it. Consequently, it sees light travel. Besides a variety of very difficult obstacles, the trail offers some outstanding scenery across Flat Iron Mesa and along the rim of 800-ft.-deep Hatch Wash. Two obstacles on this trail need special mention. Tilta-Whirl turns you sideways on a steep hill, forcing you into an uncomfortable lean. Good spotting is necessary to get through safely. Easter Egg Hill squeezes you through a narrow opening between two jagged rocks while negotiating a steep, challenging, rocky descent. Body damage is a real possibility.
