Burro Creek



The Trail:

Burro Creek is primarily about Rockhounding. Most of the trails are well graded fire roads suitable for a car. Some side roads are a bit more challenging, and in some places you may be required to cross water which can even be difficult for a Jeep.


Mostly 1.0, some side roads up to 3.0 because of sand and/or obstacles.
