These trails offer medium to large boulders, off camber, and steep climbs, technical rock crawling, steep, loose, and rocky ledges, and definitely some excitement. Some trails offer a good workout for your Jeep’s suspension where a mild to moderate suspension lift will do the job. Locking differentials will be helpful in some places to help negotiate obstacles.
