Cool scenery with a variety of terrain obstacles. Very easy to get lost.

We went to the top for the view and came back through the canyon. Fun finding calcite pieces. We had a lot of fun on this trail.

Great trail with the family! 98 Jeep Grand Cherokee 2.5 lift 31x10.5 A/T. Views!

Did the outer loop clockwise from 4 corners to Skye Valley road, Corte Madeira Rd, Espinosa Trail to the fire lookout in a Wrangler JKU Sport no lockers 2.5” lift. Aired down and lots of fun lines only used 4 low for 2 sections and my 33” AT tires had to fight a little but no real problems. Plenty of pin stripes from the close bushes as many mentioned.

We took our two seater rzr on this trail last weekend and the weather was perfect! The trail goes from easy fire roads to some pretty decent rock crawling when you get up closer to silverwood lake. I highly recommend these trails and cannot wait to return in the snow.

Fun day trip with my buddy and our wives. A novice off-roader, had a fun time. Not much change in elevation. Flat and rocky but the trails winded around mountains/hills and made for an adventurous day. Stopped under a rock wall and had lunch. Was 90 degrees, not horrible. Didn’t need 4WD. Enjoyed the loop, only saw (passed) one vehicle, plenty of room to do so throughout.

Awesome. Took this trail from Silverwood lake all the way to Lake Arrowhead. 4x4 might not be necessary, but to make it up some of the hills I would recommend a rear locking diff if you are traveling alone. High clearance is a must. The first half mile or so starting from Silverwood would be passable in a car (I saw 2 Hondas and a Ford Focus on the trail)... but after that, high clearance is needed for sure. SWEET views of the lake, and about 2/3 of the way through the trail, the whole scenery changes from high desert to forest. Tons of wildlife.. my first time seeing a fox in California. Highly recommend.

Great Trail

Some moderately rough spots but my stock 2002 Land Cruiser didn’t have any issue with any of it. Recommend for some fun wheelin.

Great road, good starter trail for those looking to try out offroad driving. We camped as well, which was very windy but a great time. Fantastic view of the night sky. Also, the wind caves are a short hike off of the main wash. Overall, highly recommend taking a trip out this way.

Took the family in the FJ Cruiser and had no problem taking this trail on. Would recommend if you do decide to cross the rock slide area then have at least 4wd and a lift. Very spiritual and very tranquil.

Amazing views once you’re at the top. Easy trail for even 2wd and even saw a Prius C drive up at some point. Only had to engage 4Hi to back into a soft sand spot to set up our tent along the drive up. Overall great experience but make sure you’re prepped with shade, water and a portable restroom of sorts if you plan on spending the night along the trail somewhere.

Great first Off Road Adventure in our new Tacoma!

Some of the best views I've seen offroading. Easy trip but I recommend goin in the winter. We went during the summer months and it was 104 degrees. The rock slide is easy in a jeep .

This was a great trail! The alternative routes add extra fun to the trail. I wouldn't recommend off shoot 8 which has an extremely steep incline. But 9, 10 and 11 are good. A fun trail for beginners and moderate off roaders.

Amazing view of the badlands at sunset! A guitarist playing and singing Eagle’s at the scene is definitely a bonus! Easy off road that you can’t get lost. No problem for first-time off roader with a Subaru’s outback!

It was a pretty good trail, don’t think I was allowed to do it on a dual sport but I did it anyway. The soft sand was ruff haha. I probably wouldn’t do it again because of my off road vehicle, but there is definitely beauty in desert scenery.

Gunslinger (11) was a really good intermediate trail. It’s narrow, but I never ran into another truck to try to squeeze around. There are some tricky spots if you don’t know how to find a decent line, but overall it should be enjoyable to most off-roaders. I completed it in a stock 3rd Gen 4Runner (4wd/ rear locker) with decent tires. I only decided to do one section in 4wd Lo, but it probably wasn’t necessary. The only real downside is this trail alone doesn’t really go anywhere, it links to harder trails that I’ll need to try in a group.

nice caves and canyons. However, long washboard trail was punishing.

I do recommend if you are in the area & have time you want to visit.

unofficial trail head.
I have used the longer of the two trails.
Trails were good, but I wouldn't use a passenger car. I found areas that had some deeper loose sand that would stop a car, & 1 or 2 areas that would need a higher clearance vehicle. A stock 4wd works fine.
The views are great & found some nice photo opportunities.
The activity level was steady flow of around 20-30 people.
The area is clean thanks to all who visit that are respectful of our outdoor points of interest.
I did not see any restroom or porta potties so plan ahead.
Have fun!

Our group also hiked this one in February and the weather was perfect. We started at the parking area and walked the Jeep trail (some in the party did not like this part) but once we reached the Slot canyon everyone was pleased. I myself find beauty in most hikes and this one was no different. There are some great views at the start of an open desert, then you hike on the Jeep Trail for a bit with above canyon views and drop in at the end. Very nice.

Best place to go near San Diego. Everything from easy to very difficult. I’ve done all the trails, but bronco peak and bronco peak connector are my favorite. At least be equipped with a rear locker to tackle the connector.

This is a nice intermediate trail for off-roading. A stock height vehicle may have trouble in a few spots due to large rocks and ruts in the trail, but we went through in a Jeep Wrangler with a 2.5' lift and 33' tires with no sweat. a few fun climbs, and close enough to a ledge to give an inexperienced passenger white knuckles. Fun little trail with cool slot canyons for hiking. I drove my Jeep into one of the slot trails and surprised my buddies waiting in their rigs when I drove out forward. :)
Once at the turn around sot near the mining ID sign there is a short hike up a hill to expose a great view of the Salton Sea.

Did this in the middle of July when it was close to 110 and still had fun. Moderately difficult hike accounting for the fact that there was 1.5 gallons of water and a lot of food supply shoved into a non-hiking backpack. The hike up the truck road was steep with very little shade. Entering the actual trail in the open space of the entrance canyon was fantastic. A turn at a fork in the road lead to a slot canyon, very fun. Afterwards, a trail leading to the calcite mine showed impressive views of the surrounding area. Atop the calcite mine hill were gorgeous views of the Salton Sea and other well known landmarks that evade my memory at this current time. The actual mines were not to be found on that particular day. However, a huge geologic formation known as locomotive rock jets out of the ground like a monolith, climbing it would be rewarding if one ever gets the chance. All in all, it felt like 3 trails in one, a great show of Anza's natural desert wonders. Do as I say, not as I do. Summer is a season only folks with brain deficiencies or a serious lack of common sense and logic would choose when it comes to exploring a desert.

Awesome trail!!

cool trail. No need for a 4x4

Dusty but lots of fun. Very worth going. Can’t wait to go back. You can also camp there.
