Trail DetailsThere a many obstacles on this 4-rated trail, with twice as many optionals just off the trail. The trail starts with a climb from Warner Valley on the newly completed "Ridgeline" trail. From the Ridgeline, you come to "The Steps" (slickrock ledges) and then to "The Funnel" (a rounded 30" step that requires stacking rocks for stock vehicles). From there, the climb is up a couple more steps to the "West Rim Boulevard", which is a rocky road that feeds several other trails. After turning down onto West Rim, the trail travels along the rim on an alternately rocky and sandy road that is on the rim. You leave the rim to travle between a set of evenly spaced pinnacles, called the "Toll Booths" that tower above the trail and have a ledge that can challenge stock rigs.
An optional pullout called the "Scenic Loop" has beautiful views of St. George and the airport, and can be a challenge for stock rigs on it's entry steps and a short climb out on dirt with a couple of ledges. From there, the challenges are various, winding through a rock-walled labyrinth until you reach the Lunch Room. Great views from here, surrounded by rock walls.
There are several challenging optional obstacles after the Lunch Room, starting with "The Squeeze" that can leave a rock rash on wide vehicles. The trail ends in an area called the "Rock Garden." This area has many various obstacles surrounding an open natural courtyard, allowing spectators to walk from one show to the next. After leaving the trail, the way back is down the Hurricane Sand Dunes, affording a chance to increase the pace and blow out the dust.
