EM4666 provides convenient access from Highway 395 to a nest of trails in the Shadow Mountains. It follows the border of Sun Hill Ranch, passing long abandoned buildings. The three peaks of the Red Buttes to the north provide a constant navigation landmark.

The desert terrain is flat and sandy, providing several suitable dispersed camping sites when meeting the BLM Camping Guidelines for dispersed camping. The first portion of the trail is on private land, with BLM property beginning after the gate at the abandoned buildings.

During the summer fire season, campfires may be restricted, and if planning to camp, one should review the current BLM Campire Restrictions.

EM4666 is an easy, flat, sandy trail requiring only a high clearance two-wheel drive vehicle.
