  • This is my second visit to this park and this trail. This time I decided to do the Chesler Loop. 18 km of magical trail. Every 30 minutes, the landscape changes. Everything is breathtaking.

  • Challenging and fun trail. We did it in a '17 JKU Sport, with 31" tires and no lift. There were some tough spots, so it did take us a few hours to complete the trail (after some careful rock moving and very meticulous spotting). We camped at the New Bates Wilson site near the end of the trail, on the way to the Confluence overlook. Loved every second of it, and we can't wait to come back after a lift/tire upgrade!
