Trail Information

Highlights

What's better than steep loose hill climbs, tight v-notch waterfalls, massive rocks, and extreme off-camber rock crawling. That's right, nothing. Little MC is a connector trail that starts next to SOS and Turkey Claw. This sweet little fun trail provides all of the fun extreme 4x4 action that Johnson Valley OHV brags about. The trail leaves the comforts of Lazy Days Trail and you are instantly introduced to a body damage, axles breaking, mind binding off-road obstacles trail that seems to never end. Not far past the intense v-notch waterfall that will for sure destroy at least one quarter panel is a steep and extremely loose hill climb waiting for you to roll over backwards. If you can make it past those two obstacles you are on the easy stretch, well if you want to call it that. Thus the next time you are in Johnson Valley, and you are looking for some good old fashion extreme rock crawling and offroading, check out Little MC.
