Trail Overview

Often busy on weekends, the easy way into this area is from the south side near the bottom of the wash. The more difficult route comes in from the back. This is a really fun area for ATVs especially. A GPS is handy here.


Moderate: Trail follows rocky wash with tight brush in places. We recommend skid plates, good articulation and high ground clearance. Aggressive stock vehicles can make it, but expect scratches. Heavy rains can create deep water challenges.
