Trachyte Ranch Road climbs from Highway 276 to the base of The Horn and Henry Mountains Road. The trail has excellent views of Mount Pennell, The Horn, and Ragged Mountain. Mount Pennell, at 11,388 feet, is the second-highest mountain in the Henrys. Mount Ellen is a mere 134 feet higher. Trachyte Ranch Road is part of the Bull Creek Pass Backcountry Byway. The trail is easy, though there is a steep shelf switchback and small rocky shelves in a burn area from the 2003 Bulldog Wildfire. There are numerous dispersed campsites located along the trail. The lower-elevation campsites sit in a juniper forest. Higher elevation sites are in pines.
