Trail Overview

Antelope Springs Road starts in LAWP land. It passes the Magma Geothermal plant, and then it enters Inyo National Forest. It climbs 300 feet and then drops almost 500 feet. The road is mostly fine sandy dirt. There are many uneven sections, tree roots, holes, and small rocks. The Forest Service does grade the road at times. It can be rougher in the spring right after the snow melts and later in the season from heavy use. There are various sections where the trail runs along cliffs. These spots are wide enough for two vehicles to pass but can be bumpy and rough. Use caution. It does give stunning views of the valleys below as well as the Eastern Sierra and White Mountains. There are many side trails to explore.
