Keep in mind that this trail is trying to be shut down by enviormental groups. Always make sure you leave the trail in better condition than what you found it.

That said, I want to run it, since I was just on the other side of the highway there 3 weeks ago!

Hi All...Would you know if a stock 4x4 Ford Explorer would be able to navigate the Hotel Rock road to Hotel Rock ruins?
Thanks for you help.
