Surprised no one has given a review as this is an awesome trail. Once you gain the elevation from either end, the trail is almost level the whole way and very scenic. It was made to allow mountain bikers access from Carr to Miller as the old trail which is farther up in elevation is in the Wilderness area, (a little history is that the upper trail used to be called the “Nigger Jim” trail), the name an old buffalo soldier built the water trough at the spring which is now called Clark Spring Trail. So the Perimeter Trail was built for mountain bikers and hikers and horseback riders who wish to travel from Carr to Miller or vice versa without going thru the Miller Peak Wilderness area. ( no motorized vehicles allowed). Oh and during the warm seasons watch out for rattlers we’ve seen several Mojave rattlers on the trail.
