Highlight: Squid's Jaunt G7 to G6 - Hot Springs ORV Park
Squid's Jaunt at Hot Springs ORV Park is a rock filled, medium difficulty trail that can be enjoyed by both stock and modified 4x4 vehicles. It ascends 366' over the course of half a mile, and is rated a 3 out of 5 on the Park's rating system (which suggests at least 32" aggressive tires and a locking differential). There are enough larger rocks, ledges, and loose gravel to entertain a seasoned veteran. Mildly challenging bypasses around harder sections will also allow a beginner in a stock rig (and use of a spotter) to complete the trail and feel proud to have done so. Traveling from west to east (uphill) is the more challenging route, with a two foot ledge midway up the trail being one of the more notable obstacles. The view back to the west as you get to the top is picture worthy, and warrants stopping along the way to take in the scenery.
