Trail Ratings Defined

Mostly easy, but the descent to Watson Wash can be very challenging for stock 4x4 SUVs. This spot will be intimidating to novice drivers. Much of the route is soft sand, which, when dry, can quickly bog down any vehicle. Don’t camp in washes where flash floods are possible.

Trail Updates

Submitted by Matt Peterson
At mileage 7.5, the steep hill now has deep undulating. We did it in our stock Tacoma but do not suggest a first time driver in a stock vehicle to attempt it. At Waypoint 07, the Mail Box, several other unique collections are further off to the north of the trail. Hint: look for toads and Jeeps.
