Eighteen miles North of Hinkley and starting near Inscription Canyon, BM6265 travels seven miles north through Superior Valley until it meets the China Lake Naval Air Warfare Center border. The surrounding hills and meadows can be overrun in the spring with bright desert wildflowers.

This straight-through trail moves over a checkerboard of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) property and West Mojave Desert Ecological Reserve land. Camping is not allowed on the Reserve land although there are plentiful, suitable dispersed camping locations while on BLM Land when meeting the BLM Camping Guidelines.

During high fire danger, campfires may be restricted, and if planning to camp here, one should review the current Campfire Restrictions and have a Campfire Permit.

BM6265 is an easy trail for a beginning driver using a high clearance two-wheel drive vehicle.
