This short trail is picked up along the Mineral Point Trail; it starts and finishes on Mineral Point Road and makes a pleasant side trip. It travels on smaller, ungraded sandy and rocky tracks along a ridgetop on Mineral Point, offering wideranging views, before dropping to visit the edge of Hell Roaring Canyon. Special Attractions: Challenging trail that makes a spur loop off Mineral Point Trail; Views into Hell Roaring Canyon. High-clearance 4WDs are recommended, though most stock SUVs are acceptable. Expect a rough road surface with rocks larger than 6 inches, but there will be a reasonable driving line available. Patches of mud are possible but can be readily negotiated; sand may be deep and require lower tire pressures. There may be stream crossings up to 12 inches deep, substantial sections of single-lane shelf road, moderate grades, and sections of moderately loose road surface.
