4X4 Offroad

In order to get a sense of how difficult a trail is, never use pictures as your guide, they are always misleading. This site uses 4 difficulty levels to loosely rate each 4×4 trail included in the trip reports at the time it was traveled. Due to the nature of these trails, difficulty can increase without warning.

EASY – Good choice for beginners. Gravel or natural surface roads with small obstacles

MODERATE – Typically natural surface with no maintenance except for erosion control. Small to moderate obstacles that can usually be avoided. Driver with experience is needed to do this in a stock vehicle.

DIFFICULT – Natural surface with no maintenance except for erosion control. Moderate obstacles requiring you to pick a safe path. Modified vehicle and experienced driver recommended.
