East Loop Trail is part of the Burea of Land Management's 27,000-acre El Mirage OHV Recreation Area. Located on the area's eastern side, the loop moves up, down, and over the Shadow Mountain foothills and Twin Hills area, reaching the fenced eastern border of the OHVA and eventually looping back to end at one of the OHVA's improved camping areas. The road often presents a rugged rocky path through the rolling hills that would be enjoyed by beginning offroaders needing only a two-wheel drive but a high clearance vehicle. As always, in the OHVA, there are many intersecting and mostly unmarked trails to explore along the way.

While the improved campsites within the recreation area are located along Mountain View Road, East Loop offers solitude and many dispersed camping opportunities.
