My Trail Reviews (4)

(within last 6 months)
2N02 - Burns Canyon (09/24/2022)
This trail was a nice trail to spend a few hours on and you can definitely get any 4x4 out here. The selection of trails you can take are great and leave options for most levels of drivers. I would defintely suggest spending tow full days out there to hike and explore connected trails.
2N70Y - Sidewinder Canyon (09/24/2022)
Great trial if your vehicle is lifted a few inches and you are driving on 31"s or bigger. Some of the ruts are pretty serious and I would consider this closer to a 4 if you have not driven trails like this before. If you have more experience wheeling this could still be considered a 3. Overall, a nice intermediate trail.
2N61Y - Heartbreak Ridge (09/24/2022)
The environment you get to drive through is incredible, but the trail itself is a little bit tedious. There are a few technical spots that are a lot of fun but besides that, there is a lot of slow moving rock-garden type areas. It's definitely a time consuming trail and it feels like a lot of the same terrain the entire trail. Going up waypoint 3 was one of the more fun parts to the trail and actually got some use of the rock sliders. If you are looking for a good trail to spend half the day on, this is the one for you. If you do not plan on going up waypoint 3 this trail is probably a 4. If you got up waypoint 3 I would call this a 5. It is not especially difficult but I would definitely recommend rock sliders and a locker if you are taking this approach.
26E219 - Bald Mountain (07/31/2022)
Best trail I have done yet. There are plenty of hard lines if you choose to do that but there is almost always a way around so you can bring most lifted vehicles with a locker through. The view at the top is definitely worth the trip. I would recommend giving yourself a whole day out there to explore all the other offshoots.
