Trail Overview

This is a two-track trail passing through a variety of landscapes leading to Manuel Gap, a high point overlooking the Adobe Town basin and rock formations below. The trail begins in a wide-open plain covered with clusters of sage and yellow flowers in the spring. Wild horses are a frequent sight as the area is also a BLM horse management area. The trail becomes rockier and less apparent in a few sections approaching Manuel Gap as the rock formations close in and become more abundant. Manuel Gap is a great place to further explore the rock formations on foot.

Difficulty

Parts of the trail are sandy or clay. There are a few wash crossings that could become much deeper after precipitation and likely change over time. Sections would likely be impassable when wet and for a few days afterwards. There are also a few sections with off-camber terrain or 6- to 12-inch rocks and ledges.
