Trail Overview

This trail leads out of the sandy wash section of lower Sikort Chapo and off into the desert. The route begins in dense trees with sharp branches sure to cause paint damage. Plenty of wildlife to see, such as jackrabbits and coyotes, quail, and even a long-horned owl, flushed from the trees. Once past the narrow trees, the rest of the trail also has loads of creosote encroaching into the track, sure to cause paint and possible sidewall damage. Some deep washouts sections test and fully flex out your suspension for fun. There are even a few steep off-camber rises and drops out of and into some of the smaller washes. It's a challenging little trail but beautiful, with plenty of mountain vistas. If you are lucky enough to see it in the spring after a heavy rainy season, the flowers are out of control, mainly featuring fields of yellow and orange with pops of purple here and there. There's a bar of Verizon LTE, but it's not consistent, so be sure to download your offline maps before you get here.
