Trail Information


This is a very fun and technical run. Easy lines to hard lines. You can make it what you want or go back and watch some built rigs play around. You'll get beautiful views as you head back to the trail. It is a great night run in the hot summer months. It also is a good place to test your skills. Camping at the little pan staging area has nice bathrooms and plenty of room for trailers. The Table Mesa area has some very fun trails from mild to extreme. You can spend a weekend out there and have a blast. Some of the other nearby trails out there are Upper Terminator, Raw Deal, Die Hard, and Anaconda.

Awesome technical trail. I think the rating is fair, though I'd peg it as a solid 6 as opposed to a 5. Our group ran both Upper and Lower Terminators on a Saturday night, starting just before sunset. What an amazing experience in the dark - things got a little spicy with a monsoon that popped up while we were out. Despite its short length, you'll spend at least 2 hours on this trail. Our group included some pretty built up JK and JL on 37s, a WJ on 37s, and my JL on 35's with a 2.5" lift. Unless you're an impeccable driver, I'd recommend skids and sliders if you're on 35's with a long wheelbase like I am. Don't go alone. Our group had to pull out the tow strap twice, mostly due to some bad lines or biting off more than we could chew. Daylight probably would have made things easier.

Ran this trail on Sat in prep for the upcoming jamboree. Great trail. The "bypass" on White line is not part of the trail however and was cut in the route for whatever reason. At least for some of us og guys it wasn't ever part of the route. The difficult line mentioned is the bypass for White Line and it's what our club uses. Anyways, trail was great and dry this time. Popular trail good obstacles.

Ran this trail while out on a weekend trip to Sedona. Table Mesa was recommended by Bent Fabrications shop owner in Glendale AZ, i made a pit stop there to get shock mounts installed. Being that.i drove my jeep from san diego and i needed to drive it back home. I didnt want to do any trails that were too hardcore extreme. I researched different trails and set out to check out Lower Terminator. This trail was awesome !! Had good challenges and rock gardens. Including a waterfall spot 1/2 way thru. I highly recommend Lower Terminator to experienced wheelers with at least 33" tires and a locker. Even saw a cow on the side of the trail on the way out.

Ran this trail this past weekend in our JKU Rubicon with 2.5" lift and 35" tires. We had our overland gear (300lbs between our rooftop tent + awning), which made some of the off-camber obstacles pretty interesting. We had a momentary scare on the second obstacle where we thought we might tip. We skipped White Line and took the line up to the left instead, which was fun and still a good challenge. Overall, a really great time with the right lines and good spotters. Will definitely do this trail again, but we'll most likely leave the overland gear at home next time so we can choose different lines.
