Trail Ratings Defined

Conditions vary depending on time of year and wind conditions. Routes shown here are easy to moderate except if you attempt to drive up larger dunes, like Oldsmobile Hill. Use extreme caution on steep slopes. Downwind side of dunes can be extremely soft, where it’s easy to get stuck or even roll over.
