Trail Overview

You can stage at some of the many RV parks in Quartzsite along Highway 95 or on BLM land along the highway. You access this 18-mile trail in the desert on the east side of Highway 95. Follow the track across the desert to the Plomosa Mountains. Plomosa Pass is rocky, narrow, tight turns, and a lot of fun in our 72-inch CanAm X3 Max SXS. Big horn sheep are often visible along the trail. This trail is very fun and moderately challenging. On the east side of the mountains, be sure to stop for lunch in Brenda.


Plomosa Pass has some steep, rocky, narrow parts with tight turns. Much of the trail is flat across the desert, although there are some washes and drainage areas. These are great for viewing driftwood created by the summer monsoon rains.


Abandoned mines around Guadalupe and Scaddan Mountains are available to hike to and tour.
