Trail Overview

This is a nice trail that takes you past lots of old mining camps and through an amazing slot canyon. There is lots of dispersed camping in the area you just have to keep your eyes open. You get amazing views of Temple Mountain and lots of varied terrain from rocky and loose to sand washes. Be aware of the weather as a flash flood from a storm would be devastating and fatal if caught in the slot canyon section. Do not attempt it there are storms around.


Wash is sandy, some of the trail sections are prone to washout and have small ledges.
