Trail Overview

This trail is a 1.5-hour out-and-back from the Nasty Flat Road turn-off that takes you by the Bromide Mine operation. The trail will take you along the rim where you will have an amazing view of the entire valley to the right. The road will come to a tee. The left takes you to the mine operations but is marked no trespassing. Going to the right becomes very rocky with a very precipitous drop to the north as you drive further out to the final viewpoint. Keep a keen eye as the rocks become razor-sharp. The views are well worth it!

Difficulty

The trail is a flat, smooth dirt road for the first two-thirds, but very sharp (tire shredding), rocky, and narrow with a steep drop to the north for the remaining third.
