Visit adobe ruins at Kentucky Camp.

A scenic canyon drive dotted with mesquite, scrub oak, tall grasses and cacti. This area is popular for ATVs and has large easy-access camping areas for RVs. The road to Kentucky Camp is closed to motor vehicles; you’ll have to take a short walk to see the historic adobe ruins. Gardner Canyon Road has several designated camping areas. There are many more roads in this area that can be explored. Check the latest Forest Service MVUM to make sure you are on legal roads.


Trail Ratings Defined

Most of the trail is easy packed dirt road. After Waypoint 04 it gets narrow and steep with several rocky hills. High clearance is needed to make the full loop.
