Where My Trail Ratings/Trail Class Numbers Come From

Trails designated for off-roading are always a touchy subject. There's almost never a unanimous decision on what the class rating should be. Why...? Because terms such as "Easy", "Moderate", "Difficult", and "Extreme" are vague, and can't be defined in a finite way.
So, it's no wonder that when I review a trail, and I state the "classification" of it, that I get some critical remarks. I understand. That's why I decided to do this video. I talk a little about where the trail classification I used come from, how trails are generally classified, and how you all will know when I'm classifying a trail based on my person experience/opinion vs. an "official" classification.
I hope this video will help a bit, and give you a bit wider of a perspective the next time you read a trail map and see it's classification.
It would also help keep ORDIP Vids going if you'd consider swinging by my Patreon page and supporting the channel!
