Trail Ratings Defined

Easy. Mostly graded dirt with occasional rougher unmaintained sections. One water crossing can be too deep to cross during high-flow periods, like in the spring and after heavy rainstorms. Trail ends with a steep descent down a rocky hill to Highway 141. Trail can be impassable when wet. Stock vehicles with high clearance, four-wheel drive and low-range gearing can do it.
