Trail Overview

This route consists of two main trails, SC47 and SC328. The trail can be accessed on the West from Kelso Valley Road and from the East at the actual Dove Springs. My route includes the section between SC69 on the West and ends at the Actual Dove Springs. Most of this trail is a semi-soft double-wide trail that is almost all s-turns. It sits a couple of feet below the main desert floor and is lined by Yuccas on both sides. This is a very fun section of trail and because many of the turns are banked, it can be done safely at a higher speed depending on your experience and skills as a driver.


The trail is almost always in good shape and has few if any obstacles.
