Second part of a great offroad trip along U.S. border.

A rugged desert drive, but with no major obstacles along the route we took. This trail is a continuation of Trail #98. It leaves from the High Tanks area and crosses over the Tinajas Altas Mountains, then heads north past Fortuna Mine (see Trail #97, described separately). All of this trail is in the Barry M. Goldwater Range West, where there are many additional roads to explore. A great trail for ATVs, UTVs and dirt bikes, but all vehicles must be licensed and street legal. The permit required for the east side covers the west side, too. When you get your permit, make sure you get a free copy of the BMGR West map. All intersections are marked with alphabetized wooden posts. Not all shown on our map.


Trail Ratings Defined

Rough and rocky in places, especially near Fortuna Mine. High clearance 4WD stock SUVs can do it. Alternate routes shown on the BMGR West map may be more difficult.

The route has no changes. I went right at Post 7 and drove Spook Canyon. The canyon was low-end moderate rating with a stock Tacoma.
