Trail Overview

This is one of the longer trails in the Pahrump BLM riding area and is a fast and fun winding trail through a beautiful Joshua Tree Forest. The trail is a steady decline/incline the entire way and is mostly road width. It's mostly dirt with loose rocks, sections of gravel, some easy rock slab sections, and some loose climbs. Some of it is wide open smooth roads, and some are narrower winding trails surrounded by cactus plants. There is one rock ledge obstacle near the western end that is more difficult but has a bypass around it. The Joshua trees get really huge on the east end of the trail in higher elevation, which is a really beautiful sight.
