Trail Overview

This cutover trail is the signed official reroute from the now closed-off ending of the O'Haco trail. Although this is supposed to be the way out, it's an incredibly more difficult route than going "back the way ya came." It primarily consists of off-camber twists and turns through very tight, dense forests of cholla "jumping" cacti. There are stunning wildflowers in the springtime and outstanding views of the mountains. A full-size or top-heavy vehicle is not recommended. The best bet is to travel the trail in a narrow vehicle that won't roll easily. However, it's the shorter distance to the highway. If you're in a larger rig, heading back would be a better option. There is no cell service aside from one bar at the top of one hill. Be sure to have your offline maps downloaded before you begin adventuring out here. Being in the desert, coming prepared is essential, as well as bringing lots of water and extra supplies in case of a breakdown.

Difficulty

The trail is rated for very off-camber and narrow twists and turns. Deep washouts could cause a stock vehicle bumper to make contact, so use caution and watch for cholla cacti close to sidewalls. A rollover may be possible with poor line choice.
