IM5841 offers difficult driving challenges even when bypassing the extreme or even impassible obstacles on the trail. Climbing up the side of the rocky Iron Mountain, the trail from its highest point loops around, traveling back to the northwest into the valley below. The trail descends into a deep wash and is abruptly blocked by a rocky barrier providing the highest level of difficulty, if not impassible. Just before encountering the obstacle, a faint bypass can be found on the north side of the trail leading around the obstacle and back down into the wash that offers its own rocky navigation challenges.
A nice level dispersed campsite is near the start of the trail.
This trail should only be attempted by experienced drivers with high clearance four-wheel drive and appropriate all-terrain tires to deal with the rocky trail.
