Trail Overview

This fun, narrow road blasts across the desert and is generally smooth and well-graded. Until it isn't, be on the lookout for frequent deep washouts and ruts. When it's wet, entire sections of the road become flowing washes. In other sections, the water crosses the road and digs out further. Otherwise, it casually follows along the unique-looking high-voltage lines and crosses over cattle guards as you pass into and out of open range. There are changes to catch a glimpse of wild mustangs off in the distance and the small sparrows that fly along with you as you pass through. There is one bar of Verizon LTE that fades in and out.
