Trail Overview

This is an easier trail between Boulder City and Jean Dry Lake Bed and then Jean. The trail starts as a powerline road heading towards the hills. The road is smooth with a few washes and some washes with rougher transitions. You will come to a paved road; pass with care. Continuing on, you cross the apex of the mountain, and the trails leading here are a mix of washy fun trails and rocky shale with a few hills requiring 4WD for safe crossing. Down the hill, you head towards Jean Dry Lake Bed in washes. There are dozens of ways you can head down the mountain and hit the dry lake bed. People camp on the dry lake bed, so be mindful not to speed near campers. The dry lake bed is worth stopping and taking a photo. The next stop is Jean where you can fill your tires or continue to your next adventure.

Difficulty

This is an easy trail with a few rock hills requiring 4WD due to shale rock.
