Overview

Carnage Canyon, or Carnage BV as it is sometimes referred too, is an extreme rock crawling trail. Though it is less than a mile long, this trail will take the majority of the day to complete depending on the group size and the trail repairs needed. It is impossible to get through without a winch and a minimum of 37'' tires. Lockers are required and vehicle damage is almost a certainty. This route features huge boulders, daunting waterfall climbs, and a V-Notch obstacle that pushes most vehicles onto their sides. This trail should not be attempted if you do not meet the posted requirements at the trailhead.
