Steady hike with clear trail, view at the end is definitely worth it! Good family hike though a little ambitious for a 3 year old.

This is a nice easy trail that allows you to enjoy a piece of the desert.

Such a nice beautiful drive through the woods and dessert. There is a few water crossings which make the trail even more enjoyable.

Didn't have to pay today. Labor Day. It was a pretty nice hike. Easy but perfect for a morning get away. Saw some donkeys about 7 of them. Got stung by a bee and my dog stepped in a cactus branch. Pretty good time overall

Started off easy, but past the last houses the real fun started. Took the trail with an ADV motorcycle. It was hard, sometimes impossible for such a heavy bike. Thank god for my small winch. There are section an ADV bike has to use the bypass. One (flat) section lead through a rocky river bed due to some construction going on. Not sure if it was really the right trail, but it was a bit annoying. I saw a group of Jeeps crawling through the difficult sections. Really cool. I also came across a few guys on dirt bikes that did not seem to have any issues at all. Flew right past :)
Again, An ADV bike with 550lbs might not be your best choice for such a trail, but I like the challenge. Overall expect to be on this trail easily 5-7h with breaks and some hard work. One may think that a few tens miles is not much, but believe me, off road it can be a really long trip. Any 4x4 with decent ground clearance will handle this trail IMHO. Dirt bikes should be good as well, ADVs can be a real challenge. Remember to bring plenty of water and food especially during the summer months, one will sweat a lot :)
Once you get closer to Crown King scenery changes to forest and more sandy trail (vs mostly rocks before). Took the straight way to I-17 from CK as it was late already. That part is really just a main dirt road, no challenges there.
Too bad my phone overheated constantly, so I could not record the whole trail. Outside temperature was indicated at times at 122F, but that could have also been from engine heat. Nevertheless weather forecast said for that day 107F and lots of sun, which I can definitely confirm to have been true.
I think I'll go back, maybe when it is a bit cooler, then lodge in CK. CK itself seems really nice.
