El Mirage 4661 (EM4661) is an up-and-back trail following the gently rising contours of the Shadow Mountains over beautiful high desert terrain with fantastic views to the northwest. Its end is the fenced border of the El Mirage OHV Area. A wonderful trail to get away, camp for an evening, and enjoy the views.

The El Mirage Subregion is a Limited Use Area requiring vehicles to stay on designated trails. The trails are well marked with frequent BLM signs to recognize if you are on the trail.

A two-wheel drive vehicle with high clearance and a beginning offroader will do fine on this trail.

Many tortoises are in the area, and a vigilant eye is needed to avoid them as they slowly cross the trail.

There are many suitable and flat locations for dispersed camping on this route, some with existing rock campfire rings.
