Trail Photo

With over 160 miles of trails on over 60,000 acres, this area offers a good variety of terrain with spectacular views of the valley. Terrain consists mostly of hard pack and sandy trails winding through the high desert scrub brush with the occasional patch of trees, some shallow water crossings, and some large canyons and sand washes. Most trails range from easy to moderate difficulty.

A large portion of the trails are designated as OHM-only (off highway motorcycles) but there is also a network of ATV trails in the southern part of the area which allow machines up to 48" wide. Shade is somewhat limited, and the best camping is actually in the designated campgrounds to the north and east of the OHV area.

Due to the lack of trees, the area generally thaws by mid April (sooner than most other riding areas) making this a safe choice for a good spring ride.
