Trail Overview

This rugged "Jeep Trail" cuts between the Calico Mountain Wilderness and the Black Rock Lake Wilderness in northeast Nevada. It connects Soldier Meadow Road to Black and Smokey Canyons before ultimately terminating at the High Rock Canyon route. It is an alternate adventure route used to connect High Rock Canyon to Black Rock playa. Traveling east to west, this trail leaves Soldier Meadow Road, passes through Jackass Flats, and then through a cattle gate just after an abandoned ranch before winding its way up to the summit and then dropping down into McConnell Canyon. It climbs over 7,000 feet at the summit and there are numerous sections of shelf roads, so this road should be avoided during winter.
