Trail Overview

This is an easy trail running between Color Rock Quarry and Apex. The route ends at Pabco Road, which is identified as a private road, though you can take it back to the I-15 without issue. You can also continue through Apex to the staging area to exit. In some parts of the trail, several passing sections add different options or allow faster vehicles by. Stop at the water tank for a snack, or if you overland, this would be a fun place to stop for the night. The scenery is breathtaking in mid-spring as the desert begins to bloom.
