EM4690 travels east/west over the entire seventeen-mile width of the El Mirage Subregion from Highway 395 to the border of Edwards AFB. The last few miles of the trail are on the county road, Avenue C. The road provides excellent access to this area of the Mojave Desert, connecting with numerous other trails to explore.
Passing through public and private land, the desert terrain here is flat and sandy, providing several good campsites when meeting the BLM Camping Guidelines and being sure to be on public land.
During fire seasons, campfires may be restricted, and if planning to camp, one should review the current BLM Campfire Restrictions.
Areas around the trail are designated as Limited Use Areas, requiring vehicles to stay on the trails.
EM4690 is an easy, flat, sandy trail requiring only a high clearance two-wheel drive vehicle.
