What might be a Nightmare for some, the legendary rock crawling trail in Johnson Valley known as Nightmare is a tough rock crawling trail. Full of rocks about 3-feet around, this trail is going to test any off-roader that is looking to push his vehicle to the max. Did we forget to mention a 7-foot waterfall? Now what really gets offroaders crying isn't the rocks but how narrow the canyon is which if one mistake happens, you will end up in the side of the canyon wall or into a large boulder that is just happy to rip off a quarter pannel to give you jeep or Toyota its first body damage. So if you are heading up Claw Hammer, and want to continue the fun, check out Nightmare in Johnson Valley California, and see what your rig can do.
