Hero: Nine Mile Wash
small-sr Icon

Nine Mile Wash zigzags for almost six miles across this barren desert landscape. When the wash is dry, 99.9% of the time, it's a mix of soft sand and very rocky sections. One minute you're cruising in the wide-open wash; the next, you're trying to decide where to climb a 3-foot vertical ledge. There are multiple optional ledges to play on in the wash. The clustered cottonwoods offer a reprieve from the glaring sun while proving that something can survive in this rugged environment. Camping is nonexistent on this trail.
