Trail Overview

This is a long meandering uphill (if traveling westbound) two-track to single-track trail that starts in the high desert and ends in the pine trees, with epic views of Kelso Canyon, the Piute Mountains, and if you are lucky, amazing wildflower blooms. The trail begins off Kelso Valley Road. If starting the trail on Cortez Way (trailhead as depicted), there is a wash crossing just over a half mile from the start. If the wash has water in it, the trail can be hard to find. If your vehicle is street-legal, trail access from Cottonwood Lane is easier, as there is a bridge that crosses the wash. The first part of the trail is a wide two-track with only the occasional whoop or rut. At 5.5 miles, the two-track becomes a single track and dirt bike only. After the single track begins, there are a couple of loose dirt hill climbs that can be tricky in dry conditions because of lack of traction. As the trail levels out, it becomes slower going and much more technical and tight. At times, the trail is so tight that both handlebars will be hitting bushes on either side of the trail. In this section, there are more rocks and obstacles, such as roots. Depending on the time of year, there may be muddy sections with the occasional small stream crossing. The hardest part of the trail is an off-camber granite rock uphill section with multiple paths up. The hardest line has a 10- to 12-inch rock shelf to get over. After more meandering tight single track, the single-track section ends at the intersection of a two-track trail in Woolstalf Meadow.
