Herring Mine Road is a short, steep, rocky hill connector road that starts on North Box Canyon and drops down to the Bad Medicine Technical Vehicle Trail, just south of Herring Mine. This is the last connecting road into or out of the Bad Medicine Canyon and is often used to access the Bad Medicine trail or as a bailout for anyone that might have damaged their vehicle. The steepness of the road and the high probability of encountering erosion ruts will require a high clearance 4-wheel drive vehicle with low gearing. Herring Mine Road is not the easiest way out of Bad Medicine, but it is the fastest if you have a capable vehicle. On the east of the trail, one small, flat campsite along a wide section of the road is up above the wash.
