The thrill of the unknown, the spinning of tires, pulling winchline, and the mud inside your vehicle because you forgot to roll your windows up... that is what 5X is all about! 5X is part of what

Trail Difficulty and Assessment

Trail Navigation

Route Finding and Path Starting from 0 Green the route will present uphill obstacles rather than downhill if you start from 5 Green. Field signage may or may not be intact when driving the trail, and following the route depicted here by utilizing the Trails Offroad app is highly recommended.

Technical The route is almost entirely dirt, with tight winding areas through trees and up and down small hills. Passing oncoming traffic some sections will not be feasible. Even in dry conditions, you will be faced with a notable mudhole. This trail could prove much more challenging simply due to traction issues when wet.

Vehicle and Equipment Recommendations It is suitable for any high-clearance vehicles with 4-low and 33" inch tires. It is a great trail for beginners and seasoned alike. Mud-terrains would be preferred simply for traction purposes. Recovery gear is a must.

Map Colors While the Park depicts this as red, which is the same color used in Trails Offroad for 5-rated trails using our 10-point rating scale. The Park describes its map colors as follows: Green = Beginner Level, Easiest Blue = Intermediate Level, More Difficult Black = Advanced Level, Most Difficult Red = Expert Level, Extremely DIfficult

Open Hours, Permits, Amenities You can wheel from dawn to dusk, but the Park's fee station is open from 9 am - 7 pm April through September and 9 am to 5 pm October through March. When you arrive, a park office offers a drive-up window to pay for your pass. The pass must be displayed. The Park has several large picnic/pavilion areas for grilling food and gathering and vault toilets towards the north end of the main paved road. There are plenty of parking lots to air down and air up,

I took this by mistake. I followed the signage for blue, apparently never saw where the blue came in and ended up taking X all the way. It's super short, but the mudhole with all terrains proved difficult; I needed to pull the winch line to get through. I had the clearance with 33s, but just not the traction. Had I had mud terrains, I am pretty confident I would have made it though no issues.
