    Difficulty 1: Passable by stock and 2WD vehicles, improved dirt, gravel etc.

    Difficulty 2: Scenic, touring trail ride; four wheel drive required occasionally, some mud holes or rocks that would stop most other vehicles are traveled easily in 4WD.

    Difficulty 3: For novice and experienced drivers alike; the most fun four wheeling you can expect to have in a stock four wheeler; low range may be required often; vehicle damage is a possibility.

    Difficulty 4: Not advisable for novice drivers; potentially dangerous situations; maximum ground clearance, lowest gears, and minimum tire size of 33 inches required; lockers, limited slips, winches, and jacks advised due to moderate to large rocks and obstacles, vehicle damage is likely. Full size vehicles limited to specific trails at this rating.

    Difficulty 4+: Not advisable for novice drivers; potentially dangerous situations; maximum ground clearance, lowest gears, and minimum tire size of 33 inches and one locker or two limited slips required; jacks and winches indispensable due to large boulders, steep inclines; vehicle damage is very likely. Full size vehicles limited to specific trails at this rating.

    Difficulty 5: No novice drivers; dangerous situations; maximum ground clearance, lowest gears, minimum tire size of 33 inches and two lockers or limited slips required; jacks and winches indispensable due to large boulders, steep inclines; vehicle damage assured. Full size vehicles limited to specific trails at this rating.

    Difficulty 5+: For the hard core experienced driver; extremely dangerous situations; maximum ground clearance, lowest gears, minimum tire size of 33 inches, two lockers, and winch are required. Full size vehicles limited to specific trails at this rating.

    ( If memory serves me correct, the trail in the pic is a 5 rated trail)

    That trail in the pic is called Kong. Up till this past spring the trail had a 72 inch width limit. There was one turn that would have been close to impossible if you were and wider. But, this spring that HUGE boulder moved. In May a guy in the club brought his fullsize bronco with a ragner cab up the trail becoming the first "fullsize" Last month during the DTC we got 2 Blazers and 1 shortbed chev up that trail. The trail is maybe 1/4 mile but takes 6-7 hrs to get a small group of vehicles to the top. Those pics dont really do justice. i got some good pics of the trail but no blazers. If anyone would like to see them let me know
