Trail Overview

This rocky run up the hill appears to have been neglected for quite some time. The trail is barely visible through the long grasses. Large boulders adorn the trail from many rockslides over the years. One section with two large boulders across from each other may be impassable for even a well-built Jeep. The rest of the trail up is very rocky; shelf road with a steep drop off and steep off-camber and very loose rocky climbs. Once through this challenging section, you will arrive at the top of the mesa. The views of the valley and surrounding area are epic. The fauna even changed to cactus and Yucca trees. There is almost no cell service in the park.

Two large narrow boulders close together on the hill climb may be impassable by larger vehicles, the shelf road is very narrow with off camber switchbacks, loose rocks and a very long fall off the edge.
