Pearl Pass (09/16/2021)
Awesome trail!
Miners Gulch (08/29/2021)
Ran this trail Uphill (heading south), which is backwards from this description and the best way to run the trail. Large boulders at the start of the creek climb make this a true gatekeeper. My buddy and I both needed a couple tries but made it thru. Fun climbing up the creek, and not easy but easier than the beginning large boulders. Fun trail to include as part of stringing a bunch together in the area
2N61Y - Heartbreak Ridge (03/28/2021)
Awesome trail with great views and fun challenges throughout the trail. A little tight for my full size Ram but we had a great time while adding a few pin stripes!
661202 - Red Canyon Drop In Trail - Chuckwalla Mountains (03/25/2021)
Fun little connector trail! Not sure why it says Short wheelbase only, I have a Ram 2500 and had no issues whatsoever! This and Red Canyon running north is a great route!
Thermal Canyon Road (03/21/2021)
Easy trail with very deep sand throughout. Getting to the trailhead from Dillon road was more challenging than this route. Very nice route however. Ran this to Pinkham and continued to Cottonwood and then ran Old Dale
2N02 - Burns Canyon (03/14/2021)
Com ones this with 3N03 to make a nice loop trail. Easy trail in a beautiful setting, which gets you to other spur trails for more fun! Great area but can get VERY busy on weekends
3N03 - Smarts Ranch (03/14/2021)
Fun easy trail that made a nice loop after running Burns canyon. The only “moderate” section of the trail is right where it meets up with Burns 2N02, other than that short section it was fun cruising on soft sand thru beautiful scenery
Borrego Mountain Wash (03/14/2021)
Ran this along with all the trails in the area, they are all fairly short and easy! Approached from the top since this description says the drop-in hill is a one way in the down direction trail. I was solo so I stopped and checked out the drop in, didn’t look too bad although getting back up would be challenging if something further down the wash turned me back. So I decided to turn back and drive down to the bottom of the wash and run up as described here. It was a lot easier than I expected and the one “hardish” section was really quite easy and then I found myself at the bottom of the drop in hill. There were no signs of any sort stating this hill was one way so I crawled up and out of it without much trouble (needed lockers to crawl but a little momentum would have probably worked fine also). There are some very large rocks and a lot of deep sand here so it’s harder than it looks but I would rate this trail as Easy / Moderate and fun!
