Trail Overview

This rutted loose trail heads from the main road along the Alvord Dry Lake Playa into the hills. It features a few steep sections with loose rutted washouts. There are a few small rock shelves and slight off-camber sections. There are a couple of small dispersed camping spots, one at the trail's end. The views of the Alvord Playa are outstanding the entire way. The trail ends at a decent-sized turnaround and appears to continue as a foot traffic game trail/single track. There are three bars of LTE Verizon service.
