Notes:

Road mileage is taken from Forest Service road data. It is first pass and will be double checked when maps of each road are produced.

Difficulty ratings are based on an average. To some, the levels list the road as easier than they are, while to others they are listed as harder. Consider this when choosing roads to drive. Know your ability. If you are new to four wheeling, start at the easy level and work up to find your highest ability.
