Highlight: Doran Canyon - Gate Keeper Bypass
Doran's Bypass is the most popular route to access Doran Canyon. Because of Doran Canyons Gate Keeper being so extreme, this route is the only way for anything less than a buggy to exit or enter Doran Canyon from the south. The route skirts along the top of the ridge looking down in Odessa Canyon and Doran's Gate Keeper making for interesting views when people are trying The Gate Keeper. On the other side of the trail are some great views of the historic Calico Ghost Town that was built in 1881.
