More fun after a rainstorm when water is flowing at the falls.

In addition to challenging rock obstacles, this trail has two unique scenic features: Chivo Falls at the end of the trail and deep water pools that require a hike. The obstacle called “Three Feathers” is the main attraction for the hard-core crowd. It offers three choices: difficult, more difficult, and forget-about-it. The area is often busy on weekends with just about every type of off-road vehicle, including ATVs, UTVs, dirt bikes, and even an occasional dune buggy.


Trail Ratings Defined

Steep and rocky with a few sandy stretches. In addition to “Three Feathers,” there are several other challenging obstacles. Just before Chivo Falls, the trail gets very steep and tippy. After a rain, deep water crossings are possible. Route-finding is challenging. Not recommended for stock SUVs unless you don’t mind a dent or two.
