While the trail can be traversed in either direction, most generally consider traveling north to south the more convenient and slightly more challenging for stock vehicles since this includes climbing up the gap, rather than descending.
High-clearance vehicles are a must given the breakover angles of many of the washouts, with 4WD only being needed in some select areas. Stock 4WD vehicles with minimal approach and departure angles may want to pay special attention to navigating some of the obstacles to avoid scraping bumpers, however most 4WDs with even a minimal lift and/or larger tires should easily clear all obstacles. Wide-body vehicles will be prone to heavy pin-striping through much of the trail and only the most experienced of full-sized vehicle owners would want to consider traversing the washouts of the off-camber ledge road near the northern end of the trail.
