Trail Overview

Roadrunner Rut is an easy dirt road that climbs into the jumbo boulder gardens and skirts along Black Lava Butte. It changes its name to BLM S1421 as it crosses into BLM lands and descends towards a network of sandy BLM roads in the washes that litter the boulder fields in this area. Roadrunner Rut is on the Northern Edge of Pioneertown, CA, a historic and popular attraction. There are numerous Airbnb properties along this road. Respect private property signs and stay on the marked road. The road surface becomes rougher and less used as it passes into BLM land.

Short but fun BLM trail with 2-3 dispersed campsite spurs. Seems like the recent rains have washed parts of it out leading to a few difficult and rutted areas. Would not be doable in low clearance 2wd.
