Trail Overview

ATV #521 is a wide ridge line two-track with wide open views of the surrounding Danskin Mountains. It starts at a 5 way intersection with trails #531, #530, and #532 at the bottom of a valley under some pine trees, and climbs up about 900 feet over 2 miles up to ATV #520. It has several steep hill climb sections that are a bit rocky and loose with ruts, which adds a challenge for ATVers. This trail would be pretty easy for a dirt biker. Sometimes the ruts are on one side of the trail, so you have to pick the high points of the trail. Taking this trail is a fun way for an ATVer to connect to several other ATV trails in this trail system for a fun day ride.

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.
