Directions to Trailhead

This off-road trail is accessible from Little Grand Canyon Trail, or from Little Pan Mine Road within the Table Mesa Recreation Area.

From Table Mesa Road on the west side of I-17 (this requires a State Trust Land Permit) head west to Little Grand Canyon Off-Road Trail which is connected to Table Mesa Road via a gravel parking area. Turn right into the parking area, and head to the north end where the 9995 trail beings. Continue north until the trail splits, then stay to the right and down into the wash.

To avoid State Trust Land, you can come from 9999 via Old Black Canyon Highway, or Black Canyon OHV Trail. Take 9999 to Little Pan Mine Road then connect with 9994.

Route Description

The most technical area, though not very difficult, of Table Mesa 9994 off-road trail is the wash at the southern end of the trail right next to where it connects with 9995 (Little Grand Canyon Trail). If it wasn't so short, you might consider it an overland trail.

This dry river bed has a lot of smaller connecting trails intended primarily for ATV's. There are also a few areas near here where you can set up camp if you don't mind being surrounded by ATV trails.

3: Little Pan Mine Road Intersection (1.4mi)

This is where the trail ends at Little Pan Mine Road.

Access Issues

If you come here to Target shoot, be cautious as there are restrictions on where you can shoot to avoid shooting across ATV trails to the west of this trail.

To access this area, you may have to cross State Trust Land, which requires a permit.
