Trail Overview

This trail is a short connector and gatekeeper to Del Sur Ridge 6N18. A couple of points feature nice views of surrounding canyons and chaparral. Deep ruts and erosion give this trail a bit of difficulty, and high clearance is strongly recommended. To prevent damage, avoid this trail after moderate to heavy rainfall. This trail may continue past the intersection with Del Sur Ridge, but it is not shown on Forest Service Motor Vehicle Use Maps beyond that point.
