This is not a maintained road, 4 wheel drive recommended but not required all the time. Watch out for wash out you may have to turn back. Campground is 1\2 way between US95 and US93 (start and end of trail). Please sign in at visitor center and make sure you have plenty of water. Stock off road vehicles will have no trouble on this route (Jeep, FJ, hummer, 4x4 truck, etc) Not recommended for passenger cars, 2x4 trucks will be OK but may want to use caution.

Nice trail with great views! Very rocky, and 4WD probably not absolutely necessary *when* the weather has been good, but 4WD definitely makes it a little easier on you and your vehicle. Took about 3 hours with a few stops including lunch at the campsite. Caught a nail or something in my tire about 7 miles from US93.

Give yourself ample time. Easy off-roading trail but lots of things to stop and see.

It was a fun day drive. Took about 4 hours to complete. Went during March in the dry season. Pretty rocky, which made for a bumpy ride. Had no problems in my 4Runner, didn't need 4WD once. Could see the need in rainy/snowy conditions. Made a day trip from it while staying in Vegas.
