Trail Overview

BLM 1648 is an unmarked trail (no trail markers) that connects from Grassy Point Road (BLM 1046) to County Highway 103. This trail is more advanced and technical with loose, large rocks, brief off-camber sections, and deep erosion ruts. The western half of the trail, directly off County Highway 103, is narrow with vegetation and would not be recommended for full-size vehicles. (It's recommended that full-size vehicles use trail BLM 1647 which is just north). Even SXSs may be brushed. Towards the middle, the trail has some erosion damage and goes in and out of the river wash a couple of times. Some of the drop-ins are steep and abrupt. Use caution in wet/rainy conditions as flash floods do happen in this area. Two livestock gates will be encountered--please be sure to close them once you pass. Livestock are free-roaming and can be on the trail so be on the lookout. As a reminder, the Arizona Strip is incredibly remote with no service and hardly any visitors. Summer months will reach triple-digit temperatures and freezing temperatures in the winter months. Be prepared when venturing out here.
