off road driving
Moderate 4wd trail. Gorgeous views at top. Steep and narrow switchbacks which can be intimidating to new drivers. Lots of cactus blooms in season. Pass a few mines, some still in operation (Chariot Mine.)
Please note: We started the trail from Hwy S2, ten miles south of Hwy 78 and ended in Banner. As you descend toward Banner at the end of the trail, you'll encounter a gate that appears to be chained and locked. We've been on this trail several times and each time the gate is "fake locked." I have no idea why except that locals have said people do it to keep the 4wd riffraff like us out!
