Difficulty Accuracy: Spot On

This was a moderate trail. Pretty easy with a 4" lift and 35" tires. No spotter needed. However, with a 2021 4dr Bronco it was very close to pinstriping in some areas. I would be cautious about taking any longer/taller/wider vehicle down the trails unless you're ok with some character additions from trees.

Calving Season is over, but Carson National Forest remains in Stage 3 Fire Restrictions, so no access is allowed in the forest of any kind.
