Public land authorities, regional communities, corporate guide service, and individual clubs or associations have their own rating system to depict the difficulty of a trail. Please make note that what you may be familiar with in a trail rating may not be the same rating used here.
Many subjective and personable variables can make a trail more or less difficult from one person to the next. Our trail guides, with an All-Access membership, are meant to depict the trail more clearly through the use of a 1-10 scale technical rating, obstacle photography, and specific concerns notated by the writer of the guide. Go All-Access now to see if a trail is in your comfort zone.
Warning: All rating is subjective. Never go on a trail alone and never be afraid to turn around if it gets too difficult. Trail ratings can change as a result of a simple rain storm, heavy winter, or a previous vehicle churning up the trail. Conditions change daily. Trails Offroad, LLC or its writers are not responsible for the accuracy of the ratings listed and they should be considered as only subjective approximations loosely framed from the below reference guide based on dry ground conditions.
