Trail Difficulty and Assessment

Trail Navigation

Monument Ridge is an in-and-back out trail that is mostly packed dirt and rock that can be steep, bumpy, and muddy at times. Although open year-round, the trail is usually impassable from October through June, depending on the weather. There are no required obstacles. The only optional obstacles are small mud pits that could be dry or wet depending on recent weather. A low-gear transfer case is recommended due to the road's steepness, but during dry conditions, any high clearance vehicle can complete this trail.
Clay soils make the road muddy and impassable during wet periods.

This is a hard trail to rate. For offroading when it's dry, it's a 2, maybe a 1. Not super exciting to drive, not hard, just sort of "blah". If there has been a lot of moisture, I can see this being a real mud fest which would definitely make it harder and more exciting. For scenery and views... it's a total 5! If you are lucky enough to be up there on a clear day, you won't regret it!
