Located just a few minutes outside Kingman, this trail offers a mix of gravelly two-track and rocky climbs. The mountain's front side has points that put your suspension's articulation to the test, winding through deep washouts. The trail transitions from packed dirt to rocky climbs and then loose gravel over packed dirt that acts like marbles. Once you reach the saddle, there are views of the Hualapai mountains to the southwest and I40 to the northeast. There is enough room on the saddle to park several vehicles, making for a nice lunch stop. If continuing to the northeast, be sure to leave the fence gate in the position you found it.

Descending the back side of the mountain is significantly less challenging, but there are points where the trail simultaneously narrows and pitches the vehicle toward the steep downhill drop-off.

As with all trails in this area, carrying a spare tire or being competent with your tire plug and patch kit is recommended.
