Trail Overview

This 2-mile "loop" starts at 5,285 feet of elevation and rises to 5,865 feet. The trail is sandy with a few rocky sections. There are also a few sections with ruts due to snowmelt and rain run-off. High-clearance vehicles are recommended. The trail turns more challenging as you rise into the canyon. At the end of the two-track trail is a hiking trail that continues up the canyon. There are beautiful flowers as well as stunning views of the surrounding mountains. The way back gives you nice views of the Alabama Hills rock formations to the east and Owens Lake to the southeast.
