The Midway Wenden Road crosses the broad Butler Valley in the east before skirting through the foothills of the Buckskin Mountains via Wenden Pass, just below Battleship Peak. The road's primary purpose was to access Camp Bouse in the 1940s. Today, the road is used to maintain an electrical transmission line. The trail is sporadically maintained and is either deep, natural gravel or sand. Views along the trail are nice if you disregard the powerline. Historic Camp Bouse is the main reason for driving the trail.

There's a huge campsite, staging area, and informational signage at Midway, the intersection at the trail's western end.
