Trail Overview

Explore the high desert north of Bliss! From the unmaintained dirt roads to Bray Lake to all the canyons, draws, and gullies, there is no shortage of terrain changes and obstacles. Expect dirt roads, deep ruts, lots of loose rock, washouts, moderate depth creek crossings, dust, and spots of mud. Other areas to explore nearby are the Davis Mountain loop, Mormon Reservoir to the northeast, and Little City of Rocks to the east. Many roads and trails to explore! Take a whole day and explore the area! A few points to remember: There are many gates in this area. Please leave the gates AS FOUND. Beware of cattle; this area is grazed from spring to fall; please pay attention to livestock crossing the road. In late winter/early spring, the roads can be extremely muddy. Please refrain from using these roads if they are muddy; they are unmaintained and will become even worse if traveled while muddy.
