    With its three major challenges: The Squeeze, Pinyon Drop-off (aka Heart Attack Hill) and the narrow canyon between them, this trail is a 'must-drive' for the most experienced and committed off-road adventurer. This is one of the more extreme routes in the Borrego Desert and its challenges should not be underestimated.

    This was a fun Trail however newer JK's with any more width then stock can not make the Squeeze. I run ATX Slabs with 3.5 back spacing and 37x12.5x17 tires and just this extra width prevented me from making it through the squeeze. If you are going to try this trail make sure you try your widest vehicles first to make sure no one is left behind. I ended up heading around and driving the trail in reverse to meet up with my group.


    Nope not going any further.

    LJ makes it through no problem.

    That looks like a sweet trail. Defiantly some potential for body damage.

    I would never doubt your ability but it is just too narrow and the walls are too high to angle through. at the point in the picture when I would give it throttle I would only go up and then at one point I didn't think I was even going to be able to back out - just stuck! It was a fun try and we gave it about an hour for a no go.
