Extreme - May be extremely steep and
rocky with ledges and drop-offs, narrow
switchbacks, boulders and uneven or
unbalanced trail surfaces. May be long
stretches of loose rock or deep sand on
steep grades with extreme sideslopes. Some
obstacles will high center most machines.
Four-wheel drive is recommended. In some
areas it may be necessary to walk machines
over or have a helping third hand. These
routes require experienced riders with a
full array of good riding skills. All users
should consider riding abilities and machine
capabilities before attempting these routes.
Most Difficult - Rocky surfaces, sharp
turns, switchbacks, steep grades, narrow
passages, low overhangs, ledges and large
rocks. Can be slippery and muddy when
wet. May have tree stumps, limbs or other
debris. Machines with low ground clearance
may strike or high center on obstacles.
Some riders may be more comfortable using
4-wheel drive machines.
More Difficult - Loose gravel, sandy, rocky
or slickrock surface. May have short sections
which are narrow. Can have blind turns,
steep or roller coaster grades, minor dropoffs, dust, ruts and frequent changes in
riding surfaces. Occasional obstacles may
strike the frame.
Easiest - Gravel or dirt surfaces which are
relatively flat and wide. Generally wide
enough for an ATV to pass a full-sized
vehicle. May be dusty but are relatively
smooth throughout with no rocks or roots
protruding more than three inches above the
