Hero: Scodie Mountains SC34
small-sr Icon

High in the southern Scodie Mountains, this short connecting trail straddles a 6,000-foot high ridge to provide exhilarating views across Bird Spring Canyon out to the Kaivah Wilderness and 2,800 feet below to the Mojave desert floor. Rising high above the eastern end of the trail is a short hiking trail to Wyleys Knob and its communication towers. The Pacific Crest Trail hugs close to the northern side of the road and intersects at one point.

SC34 itself is an easy trail, but reaching it requires traveling up the sides of the steep ridge over the very challenging trails SC37 or SC69.

Tucked up against a rock jumble that provides wind shelter is the only location suitable for dispersed camping. Dispersed camping can be enjoyed in the Scodie Subregion 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 BLM Campfire Restrictions and have a Campfire Permit.
