Trail Overview

This trail provides great views of Lake Mohave and many areas suitable for camping. The road is mostly moderate gravel but there are several short loose and steep sections. There are a lot of large yucca cactus plants on the edge of the road, so be prepared for some paint scratches. High clearance and good tires are recommended. If heading out to the end of the short spur trails be prepared to turn around on steep, loose terrain. This was fun on a DRZ400, but would have been some work on a larger adventure motorcycle. Be prepared for short and steep climbs on golf ball to baseball size loose rocks with sharp turns at the top.

For the most part this road could be negotiated by any high clearance vehicle with smart line choices and good tires. Some of the steep sections are loose and will need momentum and good suspension.
