Although not well publicized by the park, this is a fun backroad and offers surprising challenge for adventure-seeking SUV owners. The view from Point Sublime is truly outstanding. Picnic tables are provided and overnight camping is allowed with a permit. This trail offers a variety of terrain including sand, rock and mud. Several of the rocky places are steep and narrow but stock SUVs with four-wheel drive and high clearance will not have a problem.

After reading many reviews of this trail, my wife and I decided to go. We had heard that the views of the canyon were spectacular. We were not disappointed. The trail itself was however a little disappointing. I was expecting it to be a little more challenging. Any high clearance vehicle should have no problem negotiating this trail. I never needed to use 4x4. Beware the vegetation. My truck received a few pinstripes, nothing to serious. (easily buffed out). We had gotten a back country pass and camped the night. We had the point all to ourselves as there were no other people. We watched the sunset and then kicked back. All in all it was a spectacular trip.
