The Start of Holy Cross

A good part of Holy Cross Trail

The Better part of Holy Cross Trail!

Camp Robber aptly named for it will steal the food out of your hand

The trail starts at the parking lot and it immediately becomes a rocky affair.  There is very little mud on this trail. Before you reach Holy Cross City, the hardest part is just after you cross the stream.  The rocks are very large. The picture (The Better Part) doesn't do the obstacle justice. After you pass Holy Cross City, if you take the right fork, in about a quarter of a mile, you'll come to the best part! The host Jeep club of this trail embedded winching rings into the rocks on this part of the trail. This part of the trail is for experts and expertly equipped vehicles only!!  It is real easy to not only break the vehicle but to injure yourself!!
