Snake earns its​ name by winding back and forth, up and down, and through the picturesque woods of Hot Springs ORV Park. It is one of four Jeep "Badge of Honor" trails that can be wheeled here, and clocks in at 2.75 miles, making it the longest of the four. You can't miss taking a leisurely yet mildly challenging drive on this trail. From mild off-camber sections to hill climbs and descents, Snake is a great trail to initiate a new driver or new rig to off-roading.

One of my favorite Badge of Honor trails. Has only a few challenging obstacles. This trail is perfect for a beginner looking for their first badge.

The pictures previously posted on here are extremely helpful. We were using another off-road app and it is completely useless compared to this one. Definitely switching to Trails Off-road. We drove Snake after it continuously rained for several days before. We were waiting for it to stop but had go ahead because work schedules prevail. Many of the "trails" were washed out creeks and caving inclines. We regrettably took the early out. We have minor mods (2" lift, 33" tires, steel bumper). On my day, I'm not sure how well a completely stock Jeep would of faired.

This was a fun trail. I was able to do the entire thing with a mostly stock vehicle, with a small lift, but stock 30-inch tires. I did damage my plastic step on the passenger side somewhere. This trail was noticeably more difficult than all the other 2 diamond trails I did in my 4 hours here. Remembering to disengage and re-engage four-wheel drive helps a lot. Some of the turns are very sharp. I think this is supposed to be a one-way trail according to the signage, so keep that in mind. Overall it was fun.
