Trail Overview

This trail starts off on a wide graded dirt road. Then turning Northeast you proceed up a narrow double track trail. This portion of the trail ascends up a flat topped ridge which is lined with Juniper trees. There are several small arroyos to cross along the way. The arroyos are usually dry, but can have water from snow melt or rain. The concrete 1947 Bunker is located about half way up this trail at: 39.07817 - 119.63224. This double track trail is suited for off highway and 4WD high clearance vehicles. Not recommended for 2WD or 4WD cars.
