Trail Overview

Starting out from Trout Canyon, the trail is pleasant and easy with gravel/dirt washes, and then it gets tougher. There are portions of the trail that run through washes, and that area floods terribly so the washes are different each time the area gets rain. Several hills and sections required 4WD, and in one case 4-low, nothing more though. Air down for a nicer ride and stop to check out the views. Towards the end of the trail just before you hit the gate and highway, there is a crazy tiny canyon made from water runoff. Be sure to stop occasionally and smell the Joshua trees. Note that this trail may be very different after massive flooding in August 2023.

Difficulty

Most of the trail is easy, though there are a few sections where you need 4WD and 4-low.
