Trail Overview

A long trip, 54 miles, starts and ends at Whitney Pockets. The trail is pretty much half washes, half gravel. I did this trip in my Highlander but loads more fun in my Jeep or RZR. Whitney Pockets is 25 miles from Gold Butte trailhead. If using RZR, take fuel, or you can stage the trailer at Whitney or Gold Butte Trailhead.
