Trail Overview

This is a unique excursion that will take you under a railroad trestle and through a beautiful canyon. There is and optional side canyon for those wanting something more extreme. ATVs, UTVs and dirt bikes will enjoy the many side roads available in the area, but its easy to get lost. You'll need a State Trust Land permit for this trail.

Difficulty

Easy: Follow a well traveled wide sandy wash with no significant trouble spots. Road to overlook is steep and rutted in spots, but any high clearance 4x4 SUV should be able to make it. Flash floods possible in washes.
