Following the southern edge of the Golden Valley Wilderness, the highlight of this trail are the Steam Wells Petroglyphs. The trailhead to the Steam Wells Petroglyphs is located just four miles down the road. A 0.7-mile hike from the road into the wilderness brings you to ancient swirls and shapes carved into the rock's surface by the Kawaiisu people. This rock art is estimated to have been carved up to 2000 years ago.
The trail ends at a gate declaring private property, but several other connecting trails exist to explore along its length.
Dispersed camping is available anywhere along this BLM trail, with particularly lovely sites near the Brown's Ranch.
The trail has no obstacles and is easy enough for a two-wheel drive vehicle.
