Trail Information


The Fenceline Road backcountry 4x4 route in Southern Nye County has numerous minor and moderate sized washes to negotiate as you cross the alluvial fan created by erosion of the Spring Mountains to the east over millions of years. Great views of Charleston Peak, the Pahrump Valley, and all the way to Telescope Peak in Death Valley National Park some 70 miles away can be viewed on the usually clear days. The trail is generally hard packed rock and sand, and the wash crossings can be very steep and even impassable depending on vehicle and driver skill. Grades exceed 30 degrees on the most difficult of wash crossings, but there are bypasses suitable for any stock 4x4 vehicle with high ground clearance Be sure to keep your eyes open for Desert Tortoise as this is an area where BLM has released several of these endangered reptiles. This route is an excellent trip for inexperienced drivers wanting to gain experience with wash crossings and associated hill climbs

We drove this trail from Trout Canyon to Carpenter Canyon in a stock 4Runner TRD Pro. Used 4HI and rear locker a few times on the “easy” routes at the washouts. Trail is heavily used by UTV’s and pretty rutted in some areas. The brush along the trail has grown up and will create some pinstripes if your not paying attention. Enjoyed the drive and a great way to spend a 90 degree day instead of working from home. Thank you for mapping this trail!!
