Trail Overview

This trail is an unnamed oil road that cuts across BLM land and includes some spectacular views looking south towards Angel Peak and the badlands as well as looking north and northeast towards the Colorado Rockies and Aztec. There are some fairly steep inclines, stretches with heavy ruts, and some sandy stretches. Look for the hiking trailhead near the intersection with County Road 4945. This trail is also a great access point for several other trails that cut through the area leading to places like Outcrop Arch, Cerritos Canyon, and Potter Canyon.
