Awesome light trail with great scenic views. The difficult part of the trail can be skipped by taking a different route. Martinez canyon where the difficult part lies with the infamous rock that appears to have a smiley face. Going through the canyon will need a vehicle suited for off-road travel and can navigate good sized rocks. While the rocky areas aren't to difficult, having a smaller vehicle like a Jeep will help. Full size trucks/SUVs may encounter some problems and may need the driver to be more careful with picking a path to navigate the rocks without damage. Rock size range from 1' to 2' diameter. Water and snow will increase the difficultly.
