Trail Overview

Trail#6102H is one of two sites drivable by a full-size 4x4 towards a scenic site where you can see Patton Canyon and Beaver Creek in the valley below as well as ruins of an old damn that collapse in 1921. Take a short walk toward the end of the cliff to see the panoramic view of the valley below. The trail traverses through pinon and juniper trees. Penrose Commons offers dispersed camping, vault toilets, decent cell service, and a spacious staging area at the trailhead. The trails are also used for ATVs, dirt bikes, and horseback riding. It's open year-round but is subject to closure during wet weather conditions.
