Je tentais de faire un bout de la rando Secret Pass OHV trail mais l’accès est fermé et interdit. J’ai donc utilisé un stationnement a l’entrée et j’ai fait ma propre rando en faisant attention a la vegetation.

OHV/Off Road Driving

This was a very fun trail with our Jeep. We came in a different way. The trail is hard to find unless you have been there before. We hit some very difficult spots on the way. Rock sliders came in handy on this trail. Narrow spots caused some Rim damage but that is all part of the adventure. This was a great trail and I would love to come back and explore more of this area. Take y our time and enjoy the scenery. Came in after breakfast just after sunrise and came back out at sunset. You should see Burrows everywhere.. If you are driving in the Canyon wash and see holes in the middle of the wash, most likely it is from the Donkeys digging down to access the water under the sand. Expect to get Desert Pin striping down the side of your vehicle. some places the bushes are very narrow.

OHV/Off Road Driving

For off road driving, it starts off easy, and gets a lot harder as you go in. I did it in a stock 2017 Tacoma TRD Sport with off road tires. 4 low was a must at some points, and the skid plate saw a little love. I’d recommend a high clearance vehicle to do this. Shooting out there is a lot of fun and you can really get some range. Just be sure to contact the Kingman BLM office and make sure fire restrictions permit it, and learn the rules. There are a lot of cool old mines out there to explore (at your own risk). The scenery is breathtaking, especially the sunrise/sunset. With minimal light pollution, the night sky are also beautiful. Oatman is a must for the end of your journey, especially if it is overnight. The food at the main restaurant there is amazing, and the AC is real cold. Rattlesnakes are VERY common so watch your step. Wild burros are also very common out there. Both will leave you alone as long as you leave them alone. I’d highly recommend carrying firearms out there. I ran in to some strange people out there who were also armed. You are responsible for your own safety out there, as no one is coming to save you in any sort of timely matter. A shotgun would also be helpful for rattlesnake emergencies, although killing them is an absolute last resort and also illegal. (every time I saw one, I just avoided that area) Cell service is okay in some parts, but don’t rely on it. You need physical maps or a GPS, as the roads aren’t marked and near the end. It is VERY unclear what is a “road” and what it a wash that leads to a dead end. The app “viewranger” is very helpful to use as a guide on the go as to what’s a trial and what’s not. All in all I’d HIGHLY recommend this route especially to be stretched out into a 2 day journey so you can experience the night sky, the amazing sunrises/sunsets and park your vehicle to wander the hills.

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!

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.

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.

Unless you are an avid hiker, or four-wheeler, this hard to access "secret pass" is a challenge. WELL WORTH IT! It's stark beauty, unexpected watering hole and rustic wild west feel should give you a taste of this part of the world a century or more ago. Pack a lunch (and pack out your trash!) and take this trip in the winter or spring, when the water is trickling through. Take the time to wander, looking at the awesome rock formations and animal footprints. ENJOY!
