Near the end and on the west side of Tin Can Alley is the entrance to this easy-to-miss unmarked trail. Following this rocky trail south for 1-mile connects with Phillips Canyon East. Situated on a high ridge, the trail provides phenomenal east and west views below of the heavily silver-mined canyons, sometimes driving within a few feet of open tunnels and deep vertical shafts.

There are no markings over the entire trail. Following the .gpx will keep you on track. The last bit of the trail is a long steep decline made up of large stone ridges covered in loose rock and gravel. This obstacle should only be attempted by experienced drivers and with other vehicles in the group. A bypass to this obstacle is available to the east that follows a much easier path to Phillips Canyon East and to the bottom of the hill and the end of CM7632a.

There are no pre-disturbed campsites along the trail, and the only flat locations are full of large rocks. There is better camping back down Tin Can Alley at Waypoint 5.
