Hero: Prospector Trail

The Prospector Trail is an excellent continuation of the Buckmaster mining region over to the Cottonwood Canyon Road area of The Swell. The trail was once used to access numerous old mines in the area but has now become an easy way across this alien landscape. Be sure you have high clearance and durable off-road tires to get through the sharp rocks and washouts. The trail is lightly used, in fair to good condition, and not very bumpy. You might need 4x4 if you get high-centered in a rut or when it's wet. The camping is limited, and there were minimal spots without rocks covering the ground.
