Hero: Calico Mountain 7606

This short 0.4-mile spur offers inspiring geology at an impassible shear-walled box canyon that looks back over the desert basin. Some maps show CM7606 continuing through to Mule Canyon, but whatever road once existed has long ago disappeared, leaving only an impassible shear wall of rock.

Only a high clearance, four-wheel drive vehicle should attempt this rough rocky trail. The road narrows at its end, requiring a careful turnaround to keep the tires on the road. A spotter is very helpful here.

There is no flat camping area here. The best nearby campsites are on the connecting CM7600.
