Trail Overview

This is a fun trail that follows the high line poles out into the desert. If coming from Lake Havasu on the Whipple Mountain Loop Trail, you can stay straight and follow this trail down. Views are incredible, and the road is maintained by the power companies, so it's a pleasant Overlanding type of trail. You will pass through a section of Indian land, and if you wish to camp in that section, you will need a permit. At the end of the trail, you come to a wash with a large outcrop of granite with pictographs. BLM has placed fencing around it, but you can walk right up the rocks and snap some photos.
