Trail Information

Highlights

A lost secret of the desert, Kramer Arch is one of the many unknown natural obstacles in the area. This beautiful natural stone structure isn't very large so vehicle size may be an issue. If your vehicle is small enough, you can squeeze through the arch making for some awesome photo opportunities. Always approach the arch slowly and don't be afraid to back out.

Make sure you have a good spotter if you are even a little bit nervous about this. I thought it would be like "The Squeeze", but it is much more technical that that.

We went through the arch a couple times while exploring the area this weekend. It's still just as tight. In fact, the roof rack on the lifted TJ in our group made contact with the arch while going through... no damage, just a little kiss!

Did a quick run with friends. Turned out to be a great day.

Driving through the arch was more of a challenge than expected but very fun. Even with a short wheelbase and a front locker, I had to try a couple different lines. I’m sure my minimal articulation from leaf springs didn’t help either.

What might be the only trail that it takes longer to talk about it than do, this is a blast of a little trial. I love just swinging through the arch as we pass by.
