A rough climb that will require a little more clearance than an “aggressive stock SUV”. Our XJ has a 2″ lift with 30″ tires and still scrapped several times. However, there are lovely views along the way. We discovered a sidewall puncture a little past the first water crossing which forced an end to our progress on the trail (we only carry one spare). We plan to return and complete the trail soon – the trail is certainly worth another go!
