If you're looking to run a trail with dirt and rocks, skip this one. It's paved asphalt along the road.

Nice little 11 mile drive up through Trans Mountain Highway. There's a good place to stop and do some scenic viewing at the peak. Also a State Park on the side to stop and do trails.

This drive is Loop 375 over the Franklin Mountains, connecting Interstate 10 and US 54. A nice state park is up in the mountains. Nice drive.
