This trail follows some very little used tracks in extremely remote desert country within the Warm Springs Resource Area. You are unlikely to see other travelers, and if you break down, help will be a long time coming. Local ranchers use these trails to varying degrees, and the part of the trail that runs up North Canyon is better traveled, but travelers should be well prepared and self-sufficient; carry additional fuel, food, and water. A detailed regional map is strongly recommended. Special Attractions: Mining remains in North Canyon; Chance to travel some remote, little-used desert tracks; Views of Lake Sevier, the House Range, and Tule Valley. High-clearance 4WDs are preferred, but any high-clearance vehicle is acceptable. Expect a rough road surface; mud and sand are possible but will be easily passable. You may encounter rocks up to 6 inches in diameter, a loose road surface, and shelf roads, though these will be wide enough for passing or will have adequate pull-offs.
