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.

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.
