I've run this trail each year at least once for the past 4 years. It has always been a very fun trail. There are a couple sections that can be a bit tricky if you're new to 4 wheeling. There is one small ledge that if you run north-south may catch your rear bumper. Run south to north, it is a fun challenge. Though this trail is less heavily traveled than some of the nearby trails, there are many blind corners that can lead to sudden encounters with other vehicles/ATVs/dirtbikes.

Great trail. Only two spots that were moderately difficult, but very do-able for my stock Wrangler Unlimited Sahara. Ran into mountain bike tours- exercise caution coming around tight corners. I hope to hit this trail one more time before we leave this area. It took us right around 3hrs and we took our time.

Very rocky but you should not have any trouble as long as it is dry. Some of sections are very tight and steep switch backs.
