The signs on the ends of the road read Hope to Hovatter. They are almost right. The graded easy trail connects the tiny hamlet of Hope to Harquahala Road, which connects to Hovatter Road. The road passes through the southern end of the Little Harquahala Mountains and past its namesake Pyramid Peak. The desert is a collection of Ocotillo, Palo Verde, Ironwood, and Creosote brush. A dozen campsites sit mostly along the trail's southern portion, though several are on the Hope end. The best campsite sits well off the road against a rock wall on the southern side of the Little Harquahala Mountains.
