This 25-mile-long overland desert adventure provides a glimpse of the aloneness one can feel when surrounded by this vast Mojave Desert basin. However, a glance to the west reveals Highway 395, usually no more than 2 miles distant, providing comfort for those new to traveling the desert and this seldom-used trail. Large swaths of yellow Desert Sunflowers bloom along the trail after spring rains. The road intersects dozens of trails, providing an avenue to explore the Kramer Hills area.

The trail is mainly flat and sandy and becomes rocky with steep sections when reaching the Kramer Hills at its northern end. A beginning off-roader in a high clearance four-wheel drive would enjoy the driving challenges on this trail.

There are suitable sites for dispersed camping along the route. A few sites have existing rock fire rings.
