Fun SUV loop climbs to high desert overlook.

This is a fun little SUV trip that climbs to a high desert overlook. On the way you’ll pass under an interesting railroad trestle and through a scenic narrow canyon. Drivers with hard-core vehicles can go up a short optional side canyon to test their rock crawling skills. The trail crosses a mix of private and State Trust Land. Carry a State Trust Land permit (see page 16). You’ll find many side roads for ATVs, UTVs and dirt bikes. North of Wpt. 04, it’s easy to get lost on a maze of roads.


Trail Ratings Defined

Follow a well traveled wide sandy wash with no significant trouble spots. Road to overlook is steep and rutted in spots, but any high clearance 4x4 SUV should be able to make it. Flash floods possible in washes.

As of March 17/2019 the section of the road through the narrow box (1/2 mile beyond the slot canyon on the right) is not passable. There is a large tree down near the road junction and appears to be a bolder there also. Had to turn around and come back out at Mammoth.
