Trail Overview

A very nice Jeep trail over Preacher Pass in the Plomosa Mountains. A few steep climbs and descents near the pass, but otherwise quite easy. Somebody was nice enough to place a "pew" at the pass. Preacher Pass can be driven in either direction, but this description goes from Brenda to Plomosa Road. After rounding the end of the cliffs you head for Preacher Pass. Take a break on the pew. Nice views in all directions. Drop down from the pass and head for Plomosa Road.


Uneven, rutted dirt trail with loose rocks, sand, erosion, and washes. Potential water crossings up to 18" deep, mud holes, and obstacles up to 2 feet, including ledges and short, steep grades.
