    Full loop to Ruby Falls, this is a fun and intense trail, lots of river crossing and some muddy areas plus a huge mud pit near the west entrance. Definitely not suitable for stock trucks! Worth the trip!

    This trip to ruby falls was more than I expected. The scenery was amazing, the trail looked a bit challenging in some ar...

    First half is easy, accessible by almost any vehicle. Second half is tree line with steep inclines, large ruts, and lots of mud. Fun just after a big rain.

    Easy dirt road to the lake. Last 100m need a 4x4 with decent clearance to get right down to the lake. Easy park and walk last 100m if needed.

    The last 100 m was awesome..

    Trail is closed for Offroading but is nice to hike as well, with beautiful views of the mountains and alpine areas.

    Trail has washout halfway and so you must detour between some tight trees and I barely fit with my Rubicon 2 door.
