Lower Home Court is the first half of the Home Court trail and utilizes the bailout before the non-optional waterfall. The trail starts on State Trust Land and travels down a steep and rough road, passing through fields of cholla cactus before entering a wide, sandy, and boulder-strung wash. Lower Home Court slowly moves up the canyon, offering drivers many optional rock obstacles with easy to complex lines. Several of the obstacles push your vehicle through narrow rock carvings or v-notches, where one tire will travel higher than the other side, flexing out suspensions and tipping vehicles into uncomfortable situations. Traction is superb on the rocks in this canyon, and most of the obstacles have well-planted rocks that do not move much. Any high clearance 4-wheel drive vehicle would be suitable for this trail, but undercarriage damage is possible due to the rocky terrain.

The bailout takes you through BLM land and back to the main road you came in on. Upper Home Court continues in the wash, traversing several larger obstacles with no bypasses.
