Vehicle Types


A difficult trail that gets it’s name from an optional obstacle for rock buggies only.

This trail gets its name from an optional obstacle that was once attempted by Jeeps but is now strictly for rock buggies; even they aren’t guaranteed to complete it. To get through the rest of the trail unscathed, you will need a good spotter and a very capable rig. Trail starts in a wash and then follows a ridgeline ending at the Ajax Mine. This trail is open to non-street-legal vehicles, but the ride would be extremely challenging. We started the trail by driving Box Canyon, trail #56, first.


Trail Ratings Defined

Obstacles with no bypasses mixed with smooth washes. Longer vehicles will have trouble with one tight turn at the beginning. Last section of trail follows a narrow ridgeline and has deep washouts. Don’t do this trail alone.
