Overview

End of this rugged route features great camping and hiking.

This route offers unique terrain and is extra fun to drive. Looking southeast from the overlook, you can’t miss the distinctive Chocolate Drop spires. You can hike down into the Maze and connect to a network of hiking trails. To reach the start of the trail, as described here, you’ll also have to drive down the Flint Trail switchbacks. Make sure you read the Area 5 introduction on page 198. It describes critical rules and regulations for the Maze area and important driving tips.

Trail Ratings Defined

The toughest spot on this trail is a moderate ledge at 1.4 miles. You definitely need high clearance and low-range gearing coming back up. Another descent down a steep rock face after Wpt. 03 is easy despite its menacing appearance. Be aware of flash flood danger in washes.
