Trail Information

Highlights

Placer Cove Road is a great run for those looking for a very short, easy relaxing drive with scenic views of the surrounding desert and mountains. The trail takes you across the desert to a cove along the Colorado River, giving you a great place for swimming or other water activities during the summer. Eagle Wash Road is connected/nearby to several trails that can be explored at the same time.

This is the area known as Nelsons Landing cliff diving or jumping spot. It's an outright party on the weekends and in the summer. It's accessible by any vehicle and I have seen every type of vehicle here including crotch rocket motorcycles. It is the most pleasant on weekdays int he Spring when no one else is there.
