SC175 is an excellent introduction to the trails of the Jawbone Canyon OHV Area. It conveniently starts and ends near Highway 14 with a must-stop at the Jose Bishop Gravesite and Claim about ½ way along the trail.  

The road is wide and well maintained and an easy drive for new offroaders, but it still requires a high clearance 4x4 to manage the soft sand and occasionally exposed rocks.     

There are only a few predisturbed sites for dispersed camping and they can be enjoyed when meeting the BLM Camping Guidelines. BLM provides better camping at many sites along Jawbone Canyon Road. 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.
