Hero: West Pipeline Road
small-sr Icon
West Pipeline Road is an excellent road for first-time offroaders to experience the open desert on an easy trail. Along the way is a single hill to climb that rewards drivers with expansive views of the surrounding desert and distant mountains. West Pipeline Road once completed a path over Stoddard Ridge to connect to Highway 247 and reach the Sawtooth Canyon BLM campgrounds. Now a massive landslide has blocked the road at the top of the ridge, closing this once convenient access. Still, there are many wide and flat dispersed camping locations along this route, but these are open areas and exposed to the sometimes harsh winds. Several intersecting trails disappear into the surrounding hills, often to mines and prospects, and invite exploration.
