This is a serious and potentially dangerous trail. Do not go alone under any circumstances. Although challenging, the road is very scenic with much to see at the Desoto Mine. Please obey all warning signs. There is a back way to an overlook above the mine, but the road is slowly eroding away and using the road is considered trespassing on private land. Unlicensed vehicles are allowed on 9268R and 89, but we found it dangerous for ATVs after Wpt. 03.
