Temple Wash and Mining Camp Trail begins and ends along Temple Mountain Trail in the region known as Sinbad Country, so-called because the area’s rock formations, cliffs, and canyons bear a resemblance to the exotic scenery described in the Arabian Nights. Special Attractions: Mines and old mining camp; Moderately challenging alternative trail around Temple Mountain. 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.
