The Opal Canyon Trail is considered to be a dirt road, e.g. one of the best roads out here. It was challenging in a Subaru, but accesses beautiful terrain to areas where opals were once found. Red Rock Canyon State Park contains over 30 miles of 4WD back roads traversing the scenic desert terrain. A good map is needed and the visitor center gives out free rough maps showing the trails, dirt roads, 4WD roads, and serious 4WD roads.
