Highlights

Highlight: Michael’s Way D5 - Hot Springs ORV Park
Adrenaline junkies only need apply! Michael's Way is all about the rocks, and big ones they are. The first set is just a teaser of what's to come. If tire lifting, bumper dragging, and spinning tires are your idea of fun this trail is the place for you. It is a short split in the trail at Waypoint 5 of Rubicon Ridge D1, but if you make it through it may be the most memorable.
