Trail Overview

All of the maintained dirt roads can be done in a stock truck or SUV, with the exception of the short loop we took off of Sams Camp Road. That is narrow and would require a modified high clearance jeep or SUV. Graded roads through the desert ascending into trees and beautiful scenery. Many camping spots along the higher elevations of the trail. Some reservoirs in the area as well. Barclay is an old cattle/railroad town established in 1860. It still has a few residents (population 18), the schoolhouse/church is a great stopping spot. Some shallow water crossings as you near Caliente.


If the main roads are adhered to this can be done in a stock 2wd suv or truck. The spur trails is what gets technical.
