Although fairly short, this trail has to be considered one of the best in Arizona. It is extremely fun to drive and the red rock scenery is knock-out beautiful. This is an extremely popular route and traffic can be very heavy at times. Pull-outs are provided. Do not widen the trail by trying to pull over anywhere other than the pull-outs. You may have to back up. This is also a very popular hiking and mountain biking area, so be alert and courteous at all times. If you park, hike, or stop along the route, you’ll need a Red Rocks Pass. Several large rock ledges require high ground clearance but the obstacles are not overwhelming because little articulation is required. The hardest obstacle is called “The Steps,” which is driven downhill. This obstacle is very steep and will be intimidating to an inexperienced driver; however, stock SUVs with high ground clearance should be able get down just fine. You may scrape bottom so skid plates are recommended. This trail is very well marked and easy to follow.

not for the faint of heart. this starts out not so bad but has some progressively harder rock step that are challenging but very fun. i highly recommend this trail but not for first time off roaders. i would give this 6 stars if i could.

Great trail to learn your skills on for "newbies" Did it in a stock 2012 Rubicon. Great views.

Great trail with lots of fun challenges! Kids loved it, wife was about to pull the grab handle off the dash once or twice Tight but manageable for an H2. Lots of fun but know where your corners are!

Great trail for a Jeep. Best to stay in 4L. 1 or 2 technical spots.

Great views all along trail. Stairs weren't difficult, definitely need to have some ground clearance to get to some of the more fun areas. Only downside is the trail is full of Jeep tours.
