Overview

Pass through narrow canyon and return across sandy desert.

This route twists northeast through narrow, geologically interesting Canyon Sin Nombre, then follows the historic Butterfield Stage Route northwest through a series of wide sandy washes. Approximately 1.6 miles from the end, the route passes just south of a mesquite-shaded watering hole called “Palm Spring,” once used as a relay station on the Butterfield Stage Route. The area is now a popular camping spot. Street-legal vehicles only on this trail.

You’ll want 4-wheel drive for the soft sand and skid plates to get through Canyon Sin Nombre. The wide, obscure washes make route-finding very challenging. GPS is recommended.
