|1||1||Trails carrying a "base" rating of 1-3 are designed to be passable by a stock jeep vehicle.|
Trails with a base rating of 1 should be easily negotiated by a stock vehicle with minimal effort.
|2||2||Trails with a base rating of 2 will be a little more technical and may require a tow strap on a stock vehicle in one or more areas.|
|3||3||Trails with a base rating of 3 are more likely to have you pulling out that tow strap or making multiple passes to negotiate an obstacle.|
|4||4||Trails carrying a "base" rating of 4-6 are designed to be passable by slightly modified vehicles. Larger, more aggressive tires and/or a traction-aiding device, i.e. a locker, are recommended.|
Trails with a base rating of 4 should be a very good challenge for a stock vehicle, but will be on the easier side for a slightly modified vehicle.
|5||5||Trails with a base rating of 5 may require the use of a tow strap on a slightly modified vehicle in one or more areas.|
|6||6||Those trails with a base rating of 6 are more likely to have that slightly modified vehicle owner pulling out the tow strap or making multiple passes to negotiate an obstacle.|
|7||7||Trails carrying a "base" rating of 7-9 are designed to be passable by the more highly modified vehicles. Suspension lifts, larger, more aggressive tires, lockers and a winch should be considered standard equipment for these trails.|
Trails with a base rating of 7 should be a very good challenge for a slightly modified vehicle but will be on the easier side for a more highly modified vehicle.
|8||8||Trails with a base rating of 8 will probably have you making multiple passes at certain obstacles or getting some use out of that winch.|
|9||9||Those trails with a base rating of 9 will have one or many obstacles that will most likely require multiple passes or the use of your winch.|
|10||10||Those trails carrying a "base" rating of 10 should only be attempted by the most highly modified of vehicles. These vehicles are easily identified by the Jeep Jamboree stickers in the windshield, rattle can paint jobs, multiple dents from rollovers, absence of any exterior lights, light lenses or other non-essential parts, bent axles and wheels, twisted roll cage and a broken windshield. The drivers and passengers of these vehicles would have little or no common sense and are usually identified by their many Jeep related scars, stitches, broken teeth, torn clothing, uncontrollable laughing and wide-eyed scared to death looks on their faces.|
Note: Trail ratings are highly subjective. A trail that is easy for an experienced driver with a highly modified vehicle may be impassable for a novice driver in a stock vehicle. Weather conditions may also significantly affect the difficulty of a trail. Also, the difficulty of a trail may change over time, as trail use, weather, and maintenance modify the trail. Always check with the managing organization and/or recent users before planning a trip on a trail and scout ahead on foot if you are not sure of current conditions.
