Overview

The BLM-administered areas of the Quebradas have 4WD trails ranging in difficulty from "mild to wild." Known to local offroaders as a test of driver and vehicle alike, Bad Hair Day is one of a handful of trails on the wild end of the scale that can be conquered without a purpose-built rock crawling rig or buggy, and it is a lot of fun to tackle! Getting to this trail takes you well into the ruggedly beautiful badlands of the Quebradas. About 1.5 miles off of the Quebradas Backcountry Byway, portions of two other trails are traversed in order to reach this trail. A popular destination for offroad enthusiasts, one can easily plan a full day or multiple days of wheeling in this area, which is part of the 6,000-acre Gordy’s Hill Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) Area.
