The Trail Rating System is designed to allow you to plan ahead for our upcoming trail rides. These
ratings are strong recommendations for each trail we run. Every trail is rated from Easy to Extreme. It
allows the driver to safely complete the main trail with minimal, body damage, undercarriage scraping,
or vehicle extractions under ideal weather and trail conditions. In the event of adverse conditions
(excessive rain, snow, ice, etc.) the ratings automatically jumps up.
As you can see some trails carry a split rating. What this represents is an aggressive driver may be
able to complete the trail with the lesser recommendation, while the more cautious driver may want to
heed the higher rating.
(4WD, stock tire size & up) feature very mild trails with obstacles that are easy to navigate. In optimum
weather conditions, some of these trails may not require the continual use of 4WD.
(4WD, 31" tire size & up) feature mild trails with moderately demanding obstacles. These trails require
the continual use of 4WD.
(4WD, 33" tires & up) moderately demanding trails on which 4WD is constantly required. You may
encounter a wide variety of challenges, including larger boulders, and ledges. The use of
undercarriage protection is recommended.
(4WD, 33" tires & up, Locker) demanding trails on which 4WD is constantly required. You will
encounter a wide variety of challenges, large boulders, and ledges. The use of undercarriage
protection is recommended and the likelihood of getting stuck is high.
(4WD, 33" tires & up two Lockers) hard trails, the likelihood of getting stuck is considerably high. The
boulders are huge, ledges are taller, waterfalls are 5 feet and taller and the rock climbing will be
more severe. Expect your vehicle to be at extreme angles. Roll over protection is strongly
recommended for these trails.
