This trail was already rated difficult, but it’s gotten harder. Rock ledges are bigger, and the sand was extremely deep and soft. You will want to air down your tires more to avoid getting stuck. We highly recommend you drive the trail in the direction described in the book. The reverse direction requires a long hill climb in very soft sand.

Came into the park from the north on Salt Valley Road. As we headed towards the arch we didn’t find things too difficult. When the going did get tough, the lead vehicle spotted me through those spots without difficulty. Overall, the trail can be done with a stock vehicle, at this time, if you have a good spotter. On the outbound portion of the trail we really didn’t encounter any real deep sand, just some stuff 2-4 inches deep. There are some deep ruts in the sandy parts but we never drug bottom. It was a very fun run and I learned a lot about how my vehicle handled.
Fun trail. A few tough spots. Lots of scenery.
