Trail Overview

This short ATV trail connects ATV trails 500 and 501. It's mostly easy but has two sections where the trail is rutted out right down the center of the trail. On a dirt bike, it's easy to get troughed out here, but it may be easier on an ATV because you can straddle the rut. It also has several sections where the ruts are on one side of the trail, which can be more difficult for an ATV. Most of the trail is a ridge line with steep climbs and descents going up and over several hills in this mountain range. There's a bit of loose rock and embedded surface rock in the trail, making the climbs and descents more challenging. There is an intersection with ATV Trail 503 mid-way through. Since you are on a ridge line for most of the trail, the views from up top are pretty fantastic, being able to see most of the Danskin Mountain Range. There are a lot of blind hills as you crest the top of each hill climb, but you can see for a while when on top of the ridge line to see if anyone is coming for the next several hills, but it's still important to be aware of oncoming traffic, as this is a very busy ATV riding area.

Access Description

The Danskin Trail System covers 60,000 acres and 150 miles of off-road trails in a high desert mountainous terrain. There are three staging areas. Bender Creek Trailhead on the north end, Willow Creek Trailhead on the east end, and Three Point Mountain Trailhead on the west end. This is a very popular riding area, but the trails are so expansive that even when the parking lots are full, you may not run into many people while out riding. The summer is likely very hot and dusty here, so the trails are best in spring and late fall.
