This exciting trail connects Escalante Summit Trail and Griffin Road with Powell Point Trail. The trail is a moderately difficult drive over a variety of surfaces and conditions, but in dry conditions it is suitable for most high-clearance 4WDs. Special Attractions: Moderately challenging trail with a variety of driving conditions; A wide range of backcountry campsites on Barney Top; Panoramic views east over the Upper Valley. High-clearance 4WDs are required. This trail has either a rough, rutted surface, rocks up to 9 inches, mud and deep sand that may be impassable for inexperienced drivers, or stream crossings up to 18 inches deep. Certain sections may be steep enough to cause traction problems, and you may encounter very narrow shelf roads with steep drop-offs and tight clearance between rocks or trees.
