Great trail for the whole family. Took us 1.5 days taking it pretty easy average 14 mph most of the time in a lifted Tacoma with 33” tires aired down to 13 & 10 psi for comfort and grip. Very fun trail that any stock 4x4 can easily handle larger vehicles definitely expect to come home with racing stripes. We had a stock f150 in the group who momentarily got stuck on the running board and put a bubble in his bfg all terrain sidewalls and one motorcycle overheat in the dune section so take it easy there. Gas is just off the trail to the north about 20 miles from the end. We took an extra 5 gallons just Incase and that would have been enough. Water crossing at the end was 3 ft deep and no issue. Lots of wildlife- scorpion, rattle snake, racer snake, coach whip snake, baby chuckwalla, rabbits, squirrels, deer, cows, lots of lizards, desert tortoise on the trail so watch out! Slept outside under the stars. Have fun!

Amazing views once you reach the top of the trail. You can see all of Ivins and past Saint George. I’d highly recommend that you bring a four-wheel drive vehicle, whether it’s a car or ATV. Gets pretty steep in a few areas.

Early in the morning is a good time to take photos of wild animals.

Awesome Trail - River Crossing was manageable in a Stock Suburban Z71 with 4x4. Trail is pretty easy to follow with GPS. Drylake is fun - lots of different terrain. Sand, Rocks, Rutted Washes. Small technical sections. Only one real rocky section coming down into Laughlin. Overall not to bad just a few Santa Fe Racing stripes on the side of the truck after. Nothing bad. Highly recommend. Took me 2 days camping in the middle and taking our time.

Just finished this trail with family. 6 vehicles in all and we had a blast. We traveled east to west starting at mile 0 at the Avi. Had rain most of the day Sat and heavy rain that night. lots of exploring and some amazing scenery along the way. keep the rock cairns on your right. The rain made for some great off-roading but we had to bypass soda lake. We did backtrack from Razor Rd. to place our rock at Travelers. It was very muddy and would have been impossible to make the entire dry lake. Afton Canyon is absolutely amazing! We could have spent another day just exploring this area. Water crossing was very deep after the rain the night before. Always use caution when crossing this section...3 - 4' deep that afternoon. We all made it and finished up in Barstow. 3 days total and a lifetime of memories. We will definitely do this trail again. 4X4 is recommended. Carry extra fuel and don't go alone. Great camping spots scattered along trail. Like always pack it out.

Smooth road until just before antennas then a few rocks to go over. Not much turn around at top 7520 ft elevation. A bit of snow in shade. A small herd of deer down by trough. (not on all trails map.) Great day for me.

One of my favorite destinations in the Bullhead City area, have been there many times and it never disappoints. Agree with others who posted that it's not easy to find - from either the Golden Valley side or the Bullhead side. Getting there is part of the adventure!

Historical route with many side trips. seen many of video on this route and I am surprised how much the trial difficulty has gone up. There was only one steep downhill section I couldn't do. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to test their overland skills without tearing sort their rig.

This trail is rated hard? For what? A car could do this. Easy easy not scenic either!

I'd rate this more difficult than moderate for 4x4. Good trail, and I agree with the Ken C and Laura H reviews - the correct trail was not marked well, so the AllTrails app was invaluable. I purchased a subscription based on that alone.

I come up to this area a lot for stellar sunsets and a huge view. Thanks AllTrails for the map edit, previously it just showed Old Kingman Highway which is another off-road drive that's totally worth doing.

Excellent track any 4x4 should be able to tackle! Path is easily marked for the whole route (just keep rock piles on your right side) this could easily be done in two days but I recommend doing it in three. Three days gives you more time to explore the side trails and features. I highly recommend the lava tubes and cinder mine! Both were very cool spots!

Very nice place to go. You are able to find trails from super easy to advanced. I drove two hours to get here and it was worth the drive. If you are able to get to the very top at the radio tower I recommend bringing food and folding chairs because it's a beautiful view that you will want to enjoy for a while.

We spent the night at a Hotel in Laughlin and the hot shower sure felt good. I didn't take as many pictures as I should have but it took all of my concentration to make it through the 40 miles of deep sand.

On the return trip, we took a different route out of Laughlin and I drove the gas truck the whole way back. I got stuck near Geoff as a train had broken down and was blocking the road so I had to drive 10 miles to a place where I could go under the tracks and just barely cleared. As a result of the train blocking the road, I was an hour late to the gas stop and you do not get cell phone reception on the Mojave Road.

By the time the day was over and I finally got home, I think I had driven my truck over 600 miles the final day. That wore me out more than riding my bike the day before.

This is a fun ride, but it is more fun if you can have a designated gas truck driver so you don't have to trade off. Never do this ride alone because if you have a problem, it could be a very long time before someone would find you. I would say that the minimum number of riders should be at least four to be on the safe side and more is even better.

If your group is over a certain number, you have to get a permit from the Mojave National Preserve Ranger. This ride is best done in the winter because it can get well over 110 or higher in the summer.

Great little trail. We were introduced to this trail from a local who is part of one of the forehead City offroad clubs. It took us a few hours but the views from the top of the mountain we're astounding. From the top you can see everything from the beginning of Lake Mohave to the end of needles. Amazing! At the end of the trail he took us to a little offshoot to a hidden waterfall in the back hills. This trail is a 4 or 5 rated Trail and I would definitely recommend a guide from someone who is familiar with this trail.

This trail is great. You will have a hard time finding the correct path so pay close attention.
Great area to explore, old mines and random springs make for an exciting trip.
At the end of the trail it has a nice area of hardcore wheeling enjoy

And always remember to pack out what you bring in.

You can make it in a vehicle with clearance. It was steep at times and the road has suffered from wash outs and slides, but all in all, it was fun with amazing scenery.

Great, easy trail. Some technical sections, lots of landmarks. Use GPS. Stock 4WD should be fine, but may sustain some minor damage to low hanging plastic parts. Did the trail in 2 days, taking our time and camping in the middle. Find a campsite with shelter from the wind (maybe against a ridge). Completed the trip in early April, and is was getting a little hot. Rain could hamper a trek across the dry lake bed. Sign the logbook at the mailbox, and bring a rock across the lake to the travelers monument .

Great panoramic view at the top! Just spectacular. Not a super challenging drive, you'll need 4wd, but we made it up with a stock Ford Explorer - and the trail was mostly covered with snow - I would say most 4wds with any sort of ground clearance can make the journey. The trail is pretty steep at times, with some sharp switchbacks, but if you've done any 4-wheeling, you'll be fine. Have fun!
