Trail Information

Highlights

This easy drive up the narrow canyon is a popular route for people camping in Mule Canyon. The trail is mostly a wash which narrows as you get closer to the base of the mountains. Upon Arriving at the base of the mountains, the trials becomes rocky with a washed out climb. Past this location is Phillips Canyon West which is one of the harder trails in the Calico Network.

Dropped out of the mud hills and then made a left up the canyon towards Phillips. Easy and a lot of people camping.

Easy trail to exit the harder portions of the canyon. Not super scenic, but the end is fun to get some speed and test out your bump stops.

Getting more and more fun as you climb up into the hills of Calico... but nothing too challenging here.
