Connecting Odessa Canyon and Doran Canyon, this shortcut, sometimes referred to as Josh's Cut-Through, will save you several minutes when making the loop between the two canyons. With tons of rich mining history, this is the perfect trail for groups that want to avoid the rock crawling of Doran or Odessa Canyons and would rather spend their day exploring the old mine ruins and history of Calico.

This trail is a shelf-mining road, so if heights are not your thing, this won't be your favorite trail. This trail also has a steep, loose, and slightly off-camber descent and ascent on both ends that can be intimidating but can easily be handled by stock 4x4s with little assistance outside of airing down.

Camping along this trail is not ideal, and no pre-established sites exist.
