Trail Overview

This is a fun winding trail that starts right off of SC173 and quickly drops down into a soft wide sand wash. The trail narrows with a tight s-turn between large boulders then opens up into a double-wide trail that winds past the Yucca trees. After a few miles it dead ends into SC103, a left turn here will climb into the mountains and take you over to the Jawbone Canyon area. My route turns right and drops down into the lower section of SC103.
