Seventeen Mile Road starts at an intersection with US 93 and heads west. The first mile of the trail crosses a sandy wash area that often floods during storms. Once through the wash, the trail begins to climb through the Poachie Mountain Range. There are nice views of Arrastra Mountain to the south and Greenwood Peak to the north. The trail is generally packed dirt; however, there is consistent washover from drainage water flowing down the mountainside. The trail runs through BLM land and borders the Arrastra Mountain Wilderness. After 14 miles, Seventeen Mile Road intersects with Signal Road in the populated area of Greenwood. This is a beautiful area to drive through and take in mountain ranges, desert landscapes, and wilderness views. There are a few dispersed campsites along the route. Seventeen Mile Road can easily be converted to a loop by adding Signal Road, which leads you back to US 93.
