off road driving
Popular hard-core 4x4 route. Very difficult hard-core 4x4 route. Trail follows extremely rocky wash bottom, then cuts across higher ground past Woodpecker Mine and Ajax Mine, then goes down another wash bottom. Open to ATVs and UTVs, but it's a real challenge. Open all year except a few weeks a year when military training exercises are in progress. Dates of closure are posted at the main entrance at Cottonwood Canyon Road and Mineral Mountain Road. The area is closed if red flags are flying. A State Trust Land Permit is required to ride in this area. Call 602-364-2753 for details. Rating: Difficult. Large boulders and solid rock obstacles. Squeeze through narrow rock openings. Lockers and very high ground clearance required. Worst obstacles can be bypassed. Flash floods possible.
