This is a good trail that is pretty easy until you get near the top. It gets pretty difficult. I believe a stock Rubicon could do it. We had a Mitsubishi Montero with us and he made it most of the way. If you get to the very end of the trail you will have to back-track about 200 ft to get to the trail head. There is also parking at the trail head. The plane wreck is undisturbed and in great shape. It's been preserved because it is a grave site and people respect it accordingly. You'll enjoy this trail.

Excellent trail technically, with enough drive arounds for those not wishing to take on the more challenging points. Secondly, the crash site was fascinating. I wish we had more time to explore, but the lightening came rolling in and it was rather ominous. My family wanted to get back to the JEEP.
