Trail Information


Many have said that this is a place no one goes on purpose. Most that have gone, refuse to talk about it. Maybe because it was that epic, or maybe because they are that embarrassed. But when looking to push yourself, you should try Josh's Crack. This is something that you will never forget, even if they try hard. If you are brave or dumb, this could be a lot of fun. But, and a big but, this isn't for everyone, you may be walking away extremely disappointed. There is a great chance this v-notch obstacle in Cougar Buttes will eat you up and destroy your off-road vehicle like it was nothing. So be warned, Josh's Crack is a scary place to be and not for everyone. Are you crazy enough?

Several of us did this obstacle. I opted out. Some had no damage and others did but it was fun all around!

This is the weekend for Military use... Make other plans if you are going to be in the shared use area
