This was a fun trail that will be pretty easy for any truck with low range but a few rocks here and there and some steeper sections might rule out some AWD or 2WD vehicles.

Beautiful scenery and places to stop and appreciate your surroundings. Not a difficult trail at all, but very enjoyable. 3rd gen Tacoma TRDOR w/2" lift and 33 MT's.

We ran up Phillips West before going down Pillips East. Both trails seemed unchanged from the recent storms. This is a great warm up trail before running the bigger trails. A lot of times we use the Pillips trail as a short cut to get back to camp. Good times!

We had a ton of fun today on this trail. We ran it backwards from how it’s described.
