Fun trail with amazing views. I don’t know if someone refreshes the markers in the spring, but it was very easy to loose the trail. The mud wasn’t bad and could be missed in most areas. Definitely recommend this one.

Great trail. Off camber at the end incredible views. Great trail for people that don’t want the intense trail

I can't believe I hadn't heard of this trail more before running it. Great views and fun obstacles. Only real downside was the amount of traffic we encountered. 20 UTVs and a tour group of 20 +/- Jeeps, on top of the regular traffic. Didn't ruin our day, just slowed it down a little. Take your time, show good trail etiquette, no worries. My wife would probably say that the off camber at WP11 & WP22 was more "Moderate Plus". I would tend to agree in comparison to some other trails. Slow and steady as the author says. We ran The Pickle, then Hidden Canyon, and then this trail. With stops and traffic on 7R, it was around an 8 hour day, but a great one. The 6 hrs combined estimate for wheeling all three trails from Trailsoffroad.com was pretty accurate. While not as difficult or as long, it almost felt like a "Mini Trifecta". Would absolutely wheel this route again.

Very scenic with a lot of slick rock, quick sand straights, and wonderful views with many optional off-shoot trails.

Super fun trail with almost constant obstacles besides the high speed sand sections. Had a ton of fun, was a little timid since this was my first trail in awhile but everything was fine. I hated the off camber bits near the end but it was worth it.
