Top of the World is a popular and well-known off-road trail. It has some unique photo opportunities with a cliff that juts out where drivers park their rig to get a photo. The views are awesome and the off-roading is just as good. Right off the pavement, there is a 5-mile drive along the graded dirt Entrada Bluffs Road to reach the main trailhead. Expect small ledges, shelves, and protruding rocks. High clearance and 4WD is a must. Some of the obstacles can be bypassed. This is not suitable for stock SUVs.

This is a short route but packed with obstacles and technical driving. The first set of obstacles are known as Pickle #1, spicy pickle, and jalapeno. Pickle #1 is a large double ledge that will take some precise timing with the gas. Short wheelbase vehicles, ATVs and mots UTVs will most likely have to winch up here because rollovers are common. Once you get in further to the area known as Mashed Potatoes expect some short steep climbs through slick rock with optional hard-core obstacles.

Front and rear lockers are a must, as well as a winch. The start of the trail crosses private land and requires you to sign in and pay a small fee ($3.00). Most obstacles have a winch point.
