Hero: Lower Pleasant Canyon Bypass
small-sr Icon

Look no further than this road when looking for a bypass for the lower section of Pleasent Canyon. Recently graded in 2024, this extremely easy dirt road that snakes its way up the side of the mountains can be done in any high-ground clearance vehicle. Starting at 1,084 feet above sea level and rising to over 2,880 feet, this easy bypass takes you around the lower section of Pleasent Canyon, which is known to get eroded by flowing water and be insanely overgrown. This trail drops you where Pleasant Canyon opens up and is no longer overgrown. Along the route, you will see similar terrain to the lower Jackpot Canyon, a sparse desert terrain. This trail is graded, so all 2WD vehicles should be able to drive this trail.

Due to the nature of this trail being on the side of the hill, there are no suitable locations to camp.
