Trail Information


There are two ways onto the Mainline, one is where Sunrise dumps out and the other is from the main road. The trail has a few loop-de-loos and a bit of an area to play at the beginning, leading into a tight trail that will possibly cause some body scraping if you aren't careful. Trees are tight through here and a short wheel base vehicle will have an easier time on this trail; old Broncos and 4 door Jeeps may need to make multi-point turns in some areas. When in season the Mud Bog is sure to mire the best built of rigs; it is a throttle wide open, mud filled playground! Go ahead and think that your lockers and MTs will get you through, but don't count on it, the mud is bottomless and this is one area that never seems to dry up. The best part of the Mainline Trail is the Hill Climb, a 60 degree slope that can turn treacherous with just a few drops of rain. Once you are clear of the trees, the trail turns into basically a logging road which connects you to the other trails in the system.

Depending on the time of year the mid bog can be very deep. A jeep with a small lift and less than 35” tires will likely get water inside the passenger compartment.

Ran this right after getting off Sunrise trail. No issues for my JKU on 37's but it was completely dry. Might be a little more difficult in the rain. I also did not play around on any of the optional lines/obstacles/play areas but they do look like fun! Good connector trail/road to get to a lot of the trails or fun places to watch! (Boat Ramp)

We ran this on a wet March day. We bypassed the mud bog area. It was completely full. I would not attempt that without a snorkel. The obstacles at waypoint 4 was a great place to test our flex. Overall a fun trail.
