Trail Overview

This is short spur trail off of the Harry Wade Exit Route. Expect similar conditions to what has been experienced on HWER albeit with a bit more washboard and cross-graining. There are a few washes to cross as you head towards the Ibex Mountains. At the end of the 3.9 mile trail, park and walk the short hill to view the Saratoga Springs - a phenomenal year round lush green marsh filled with pup fish and fowl. A spectacular site after the drive through the most arid portion of Death Valley.
