Trail Overview

This is a short 2.6-mile point-to-point trail in the Rolls OHV trail network. It connects MT-13 on the north end to FDR-1863 on the south end. This is a narrow twisting sand wash with high hills on both sides. The road surface is loose and deep sand and gravel with high-banked tight turns. The trail gets incredibly "whooped up" after a lot of use in the dry seasons, but gets smoothed back out again after big rains that flood out the wash. With that in mind, be very careful traveling this (or any) wash during heavy rain. The trail is narrow with dense, thick brush on either side and some tree branches arching low over the trail. While full-size vehicles can and do push their way through, do not proceed unless you are okay with copious amounts of deep scratches in your paint. Due to the thick vegetation, visibility on this trail is poor and almost every turn is blind. This trail is used quite a bit by private users as well as tour companies, so watch out for oncoming traffic around blind turns. There is no sweeping, wide-open scenery that you get from the surrounding ridge tops, but wildlife is abundant here. You may encounter deer, rabbit, quail, snakes, lizards, and possibly mountain lions. A couple of times a year, cattle are being moved through the area, so watch out for those as well. Bring whatever you need with you, i.e. fuel, food, water, and recovery gear; cell service is limited or non-existent.

Difficulty

This is not a difficult trail, but blind turns mean you could meet oncoming traffic when you least expect it.
