Trail Overview

This trail runs along Lake Mountain with a view looking down onto Eagle Mountain. It starts in Reformation Canyon. The trail is pretty mellow for the first 5.5 miles and consists mainly of hard-packed trails. 2 miles in is a gate that is to remain closed as you pass through. As this trail comes into Wiley Canyon and then into Wildcat Canyon and Mercer Canyon, it becomes more technical as the trail becomes tighter with washed-out sections and sections of loose rock and big rocks. The trail ends at the end of the Israel Canyon Lake Mountain Pass which continues onto Soldiers Pass.

Made it 20% through the trail before smashing my skid plate on a 14” rock on the edge of the trail. Learn from my mistakes and don’t try to Baja race it, kids.
