Ran the offroad trail as marked adding in slight detours to Devil's Throat sinkhole, and up Mud Wash Road to Little Finland before hooking into Gold Butte Wash Road around the butte and hooking back into the New Gold Butte Road. Very scenic drive, New Gold Butte Road itself is in excellent condition that most any vehicle could traverse, the other wash roads had some deep sand/mud, minor steps, and very rocky in parts as most washes are. Nothing high clearance can't handle, 4X helpful but not necessary. Highly recommend the detour to Little Finland which is beautiful red rock ridge with spring flowing out and palm trees growing into the ridge, very scenic and peaceful. Plenty of hiking opportunities throughout the drive and many more roads to explore if you have the gas for it.
