Patriot Trail

Basics
Length:
0.12 miles
Difficulty:
Difficult

Description

The Penrose trail system (Liberty Trail, Patriot Trail and Independence Trail) is an extremely tough system in general, but the Patriot Trail is the absolute roughest one. Some expert off-roaders may find it ultimately impassable - body damage is almost a given. Giant ledges wait for you at the top and before you get there are two obstacles. Axle Hole is a very tricky gap and Coffin Rock is a ledge with a rock at its bottom, which makes descent a difficult matter indeed.
