Trail Overview

This 10-mile track drops down into Antelope Valley and then goes back up towards Timbered Dome. You gain 1800 feet in elevation. The track is primarily on BLM, and where it crosses private property, access is allowed. Opportunities for backpacking, hiking, wildlife viewing, climbing, sightseeing, and photography are available here. The area is steep and rugged, so some of these activities are challenging. The views from the high ridges and peaks are spectacular. Cattle do summer in this area, so be sure to watch out for them. By May the flowers are starting to bloom.
