OHV/Off Road Driving

You can’t go all the way from S2 near Butterfield (at box canyon) to S1 (sunrise highway) with a vehicle, but you can cut across at Chariot Canyon to Banner Grade (Hwy 78). Its a tough trek unless you have the right equipment. I’ve reviewed this already as Oriflamme Canyon trail. Check it out for recommendations. Also passable via Rodriguez Canyon if you want to rock crawl (for you Jeeper creepers). Again, go prepared. Awesome adventure. Oriflamme Canyon and the Mason Valley Truck Trail are worth exploring. The entire trek is hike-ready. It is not truly closed altogether if you are on foot. The PCT crosses this trail too.
