If you're the adventurous type seeking the lesser-traveled trail, bushwhacking and rock crawling through remote Camel Wash is made for you. This very lightly used canyon is far out in the northern region of the San Rafael Swell Recreation Area, where very few full-size vehicles travel. The trail is almost "virgin" in spots, with the driver having to find their way through the brush, over boulders, up and down near vertical dirt embankments, all while staying on track. The trail is best traveled in either direction, the easiest being the flats on the western end. Combined with Neversweat and Grey Flats, it creates a fantastic rock-crawling scenic loop. No established campsites were noted along this trail, but a small group could use numerous flat and open areas on the BLM Land. You will need rock crawling experience and a reliable 4x4 vehicle with durable tires and high clearance.
