Trail Information

Highlights

Located in the heart of the 73,000 acre Windrock Park, this daunting double black diamond trail is not for the faint of heart... We try to put a waypoint at obstacles, but if we did that on this trail, the entire trail would be waypoints. With obstacle after obstacle, if you can make it through "The Gatekeeper", you should be ready to tackle the rest of Windrock Park. Let us put it to you this way, the trail footage you see of "The Gatekeeper", if there wasn't a vehicle in it, it's because we walked it to try and show you what to prepare for... And we were definitely out of breath by the top... Get ready for a heart-pounding hard trail if you attempt this one. You're gonna need a spotter; but you CAN conquer the "Gate Keeper"... if you're prepared.

Trail 15 is great when dry and you take the left side up vs' the right...depending on your rig. We had two jeeps both JK's make it up without issue.

Trail 15 is a blast! Trail fits a lot of action in a short distance. If you catch it when it's dry, you can get it done in 15-20 minutes. When wet, it can take you over an hour. If you have a built Jeep, I'd definitely recommend this one.
