This alternate way to Bickel Camp and Burro Schmidt Tunnel offers a bit more challenge than Bonanza Gulch, Trail #55. Towering red buttes surround the canyon as you pass through Cudahy Camp and continue north. Don’t miss the interesting dugout west of the camp. Area is open to greensticker vehicles but you must stay on designated routes at all times. No camping in Red Rock Canyon State Park.
Hot in summer.

This trail was pretty badly washed out, making it borderline Difficult rather than Moderate. I only took the southern half, coming from Opal Pass (which was very easy by comparison). I had to cross from the broken trail to the wash at the bottom and back numerous times and stack stones to make it through some difficult spots with my Rubicon. I would only recommend this for vehicles with a significant lift and large (35+) tires in its current condition.
This trail wa a lot of fun! The cave / tunnel was what to be expected. The views were awesome!
