Trail Ratings
« on: April 24, 2008, 10:52:17 AM »
Level One Easy
This level is for the novice off-roader. Four-wheel dive will be needed occasionally for a few "tough" spots. These are generally access roads.

Level Two Easy Medium
For the little more experienced 'wheeler. Four-wheel drive will be needed a lot. Stock vehicles with stock tires are okay.

Level Three Medium
Action-packed and challenging, for moderately experienced 'wheelers. At least 32" aggressive treads are needed, rear locking differentials are recommended. Level 3 requires more concentration than levels 1 and 2.

Level Four Hard Medium
High-intensity, adrenaline-pumping fun! For experienced wheelers only! At least 33" tires and front/rear lockers are recommended. A winch and tree strap are also recommended. These trails require a co-driver / spotter and heavy concentration.

Level Five Hard
This is the real deal for experienced off-roaders! Nobody gets on a Level 5 trail without being locked front and rear. You must have a winch and tree straps, and little regard for your rig's body panels. You can expect cosmetic and mechanical damage on some of these trails. These trails require a co-driver / spotter and your undivided attention.
