Trail Overview

This trail has a lot of elevation change and crosses over many washes that are sandy and rocky. During monsoon season, they could be very dug out. However, seeing as how this is an access road for the powerlines and buried fiber optic lines, it appears to be graded quite often. There are fantastic views as you crest some of the many hills on the route. There is also an incredible hollowed-out rock formation that is well worth a stop to explore. It may not be easy to spot depending on the direction the trail is traveled. Once you see it, you will know you have found it. One bar of Verizon LTE fades in and out.

Difficulty

It is currently graded, but it crosses through and runs in a few washes that appear to get quite deep during monsoon season and could be challenging before the grader makes it back through. But If graded, it will be more of a three for the longer hill climbs and narrow sections, making passing oncoming difficult.
