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.

Turn right into the wash
This is the 1st set of ledges. Most challenging on the far left and easiest on the far right
The challenging line is far left and the easiest line is far right. pic 2 is looking back.
This obstacle is deceiving. If not done properly you can slide down the rock into the wall or tip over onto the wall. There is a hard line on the left just before this obstacle. It will take you on top and you then can drop back down into the trail at the Z turn. There is also a bypass on the left going up. It is right at the start of the rock with the white line. The 1st pic is the bypass. In the rock there is a white line (Pic 2 red arrow) you want the driver tire on or above this line. The trick is to roll smoothly off the backside. Too much braking and you will sit on the belly and slide down the rock. I find a nice low gear and roll right off controlled and its almost nothing.
Pic 1 is heading up into the Z turn. Looking directly at the buggy line. just off to the left is a bypass. turning right heading down into the Z. In the middle of the Z is called the Terminator. This was the original obstacle the trail was named after. Pic 2 is lined up for the Terminator. to the right of that is the way out of the Z. Pic 3 is the bypass.
This play area is on the right. there is a ridge you can climb over and go across the top. Be very careful as this is very off camber. You can go through the center and climb up and out to the left and pivot on the sliders. you can get some air time on the center.
There are a few more play areas on the left and at the end.
Take one of the hill climbs up out of the wash on the left to go up to the main shelf road back.
