    BUT some really good/technical 4x4 trails

    I highly recommend this location for 4x4 swb trucks. Some tight turns and steep climbs.

    Most trails are plenty wide, avoiding scratches.

    Most 2wd trucks can drive around the ponds and such, with little issue. It's upto you how difficult the path is.

    Some rock piles, for those with mid travel, and armor...

    Little sand or mud, mostly lime rock surface

    Clean ponds to swim, fish, and cliff dive ....Floating docks to catch some sun. Restrooms for the ladies too!
