This is an excellent ride for most skill levels. There are some rocky patches but even the beginner can get through them with little difficulty. The views are well worth the few rocks encounterted.

The trail overall was very easy to drive with no serious washboard or runoff ruts. There was a side trail that apparently can take you from the Crystal Peak Loop trail up to the top of Crystal Peak, but unless you're looking for new pinstriping for your vehicle, don't do it. The trail would be good on a motorcycle however--it's just too overgrown for full-size vehicles. Overall, my kids and I really enjoyed the views of the back of Peavine, Dog Valley, and the Reno basin.
