Trail Information


The Secret Pass 4x4 trail is an easy way to explore a seldom visited area of Nevada, and one of the best places we know of to see wild burros. 4 wheel drive is usually not required, and you will see unusual geologic formations, active and abandoned mining operations, unspoiled desert scenery, and expansive views along the way that will ensure you made the right choice taking this remote Nevada offroad trail.

We ran through Secret Pass from the opposite direction as described. We entered Secret Pass trail from Flourspar Canyon. We had the rare opportunity to run these trails in the snow . We visited several mine sites in the area and took in the view from the top of the hill with the microwave relay tower. Stunning views! We also had the great good fortune to spot three Bighorn rams in Secret Pass along with several groups of Burros. The trail is in great condition and there are many miles of roads to explore in the immediate area.

took this trail yesterday, fun drive for something different from Death Valley. Lots of small spur roads to explore off this main trail and I did about 60 miles worth. spent the whole day driving and hiking around mine sites. drove a mile into one canyon where if you don't have a stock jeep or better you will not make it to the end. Still not sure which canyon it was but an awesome place. Stopped here and did some Drone video/pictures had a lunch and did some target shooting. Saw a few Burros on the drive in and one other vehicle, couple of locals out for an afternoon upland bird hunt. there are miles of roads and 4x4 trails to explore in this area. Also lots of prospecting going on.
