Swansea Cutoff is a graded road between Mineral Wash and Planet Ranch Road. Besides being a nice shortcut, the trail offers decent views of the Buckskin Mountains. An abandoned dirt airstrip on the western end makes for a huge camping area with multiple fire rings and views northeastward of Tunnel Peak. There are also two slot canyons nearby. One is drivable, and the other makes a nice short hike.
