Overview

A long, scenic, remote loop with plenty of off-road challenges.

This trail is a popular route during “Rock Junction,” Grand Junction’s annual summertime 4×4 event. The trail is remote and seldom used the rest of the year, so trail conditions can worsen. The long loop is scenic with plenty of off-road challenges. Take a GPS and explore many other trails in the surrounding area. Be sure to fill up in Gateway before heading out.

Difficult
Trail Ratings Defined

Difficult. Several obstacles have no bypasses. The road is very rocky in spots due to excessive erosion of soft soils. Some sections of the trail have Bentonite clay which is slippery when wet or dry. One narrow spot along a shelf road forces you very close to the edge. Don’t drive this trail by yourself.
