Overview

Wipe-Out Hill is undoubtedly an intimidating trail name, but in no way should the one optional obstacle be the only reason for running this trail. There is so much more. Once you exit the pavement, immediately leaving the packed mini-vans behind, you'll be enveloped by the landscape, and red sandstone cliffs fill your windshield. This is one of those trails where you put it in 4-low and leave it there for the next couple of hours. Several early challenges will ensure your rig is ready for the big show at the midway point of the loop. Wipe-Out Hill is an optional steep slab of sandstone with off-camber vertical ledges. The climb up and down is optional and not for the inexperienced. The loop's second half is a scenic drive below the cliffs. The challenges in this section are ideal for stock type 4x4s. Be sure to look for unique rock formations along the way.
