TERRAIN: The switchbacks to get up the mountain are ROCKY. There are large boulders and you will be guided on how to maneuver around them. There are also some sections that get close to the edge of a cliffside. Once you get to the top of the mountain it opens up to more flat terrain with mud puddles in some sections. The trail can be dusty so we recommend wearing sunglasses for protection. *In winter the road also becomes icy and is more of an intermediate ATV trip.
