San Rafael Desert 9230 is a moderate 4x4 trail that quickly connects with several remote trails accessing little-used areas along the San Rafael River. Only a few people have ever visited the remote campsites overlooking the river on the side trails. The trail is a mix of rolling sandy hills and bouncy rock sections. The views approaching the river basin are colorful in summer and excellent during fall, creating a bright ribbon across the red desert. Camping was nonexistent because all the sites were along the river on the other connecting trails.
