Trail Overview

Christmas Tree Pass is a fun, dirt road adventure in the hills above the Colorado River on the Arizona/Nevada border. It is named for a tree on the trail that is decorated with christmas ornaments. This is a relatively easy drive, with the occasional need for 4Lo on the east section when the sand is soft. There are numerous viewpoints with beautiful regional desert vistas. This is rattlesnake territory, so take caution.

Trail was easy. Washboard a good part of the trail. Did it in a 2023 Jeep Rubicon but stayed in 2wd.

Nice Trail, not much Wildlife, but nonetheless pictures don't do justice.
