Trail Ratings and Descriptions
The below trail ratings are based on a Jeep Wrangler JK and an average driver. Experienced drivers may get through harder trails with less than recommended. The ratings are based on a 5 level system. But don't worry, if you would like to try a harder trail than you may be used to we will have experienced guides on every trail who will be happy to help you out and build your experience level.
- Crooked Creek - Trail Rating 1 - A scenic drive through the mountain! Starting the tour in the Turtle Creek Windmill area then beginning the zig-zag climb down the mountain. You will encounter many scenic spots/photo opportunities, as well as a NB covered bridge. You will end in Crooked Creek, close to Alma with a drive up the coast back to town. You will want to air down to avoid the bumpy ride and the windmill area can be dusty. Scratch free and optional hill climb.
- Memramcook - Trail Rating 2 - Stock friendly for wranglers, stock doable for non wranglers. A little bit of everything, hill climbs and descents, mud, small water holes, rocks and a pit to play in for the adventurous. Possibility of small surface scratches. We will stop at the point which overlooks the Bay of Fundy and have lunch. This is a great trail and loved by many.
- Shepody Mountain Run - Trail Rating 3 - A scenic trail with a top of the mountain view. The trail will begin into the woods on what seems like a regular dirt road. The convoy will then turn down to the base of the main climb. From here we will proceed through a gully, the first of our obstacles for the day. Here we begin our ascent to the top of the mountain. From the top we will be able to overlook the bay of Fundy. At the top we will have lunch, then begin our descent back down. Reversing all the previous obstacles then making our way to a pit where we will be able to play around some more. Front and rear tow points are necessary, winch is recommended, tires should be 31’’ or larger, airing down is highly recommended. This trail is rated as doable, but harder for a stock vehicle, some modifications are recommended.
- Sugar Shack/Hell Hole - Trail Rating 4 - Nice climb through the mountains with some flat spots. Sugar Shack/Hell Hole is known for the winching in wet climates! There are some tight and technical spots where roots are sticking out, trees to maneuver around and could potentially cause some body damage if you are not careful, possible scratches. It is a very fun trail and a winch is highly recommended. If the terrain is wet it gets very muddy. Stock jeeps have done this trail and some areas are challenging. Recommended 33's, winch, tow points.
- Pin Stripes (PS2) - Trail Rating 4 - Nice ride into the woods through Memel road which leads to a series of offshoots ranging from rocky hill climbs, winding tight rock climbs, a large drop off followed by a rock garden and more winding trails. You will end up at the Bowl which is a two storey drop (2 up, down again and up and out). All obstacles have go arounds so if you don't feel comfortable you can do as much or as little as you want. Recommended for obstacles, 33's, 2.5 " lift, tow points.
- Crack - Trail Rating 5 - Lots of rock and boulders to get over and continues on through a very tight and rocky ravine. There will be lots of off camber and rock climbs. There is one offshoot to play in if you want to that goes up to the left of the trail. Continuing on, more boulders to get over and around, more tight turns and all the way to the end. The end of the trail brings you to the back side, some mud holes and another off camber ditch to play in before ending up in Ings. Possibility of body damage. Recommended 35's, 2.5 "+ lift, tow points
- Jawbone - Trail Rating 5(6) - Starting off this trail with your first obstacle of a very tight turn and rocky/muddy hill climb to the top of the trail, there is a go around but it is also a very steep hill. This trail has very tight spots and lots of boulders/rocks and is technical. Once you are past the gate keeper, there is some very off camber spots to get through and your vehicle will possible have 1 or 2 wheels off the ground. Not for the faint of heart! There is a very muddy hill climb 2/3rds of the way in where winching might be your only option. Some have made it up without winching, depends on the climate on that day. The end of the trail is also technical with a turn out of the trail and a very stubborn tree and obstacle. Recommended 35's, winch, 2.5" lift +, lockers, rock rails. Possible body damage and scratches.
