This trail begins near the southern end of Western #32: Como Ghost Town Trail. The road is a wide, graded dirt road, which proceeds to the northeast toward Churchill Canyon along the northern edge of the Buckskin Range. The road is very corrugated and has a few embedded rocks, which create a rough ride; however, in good conditions the trail is negotiable in a passenger vehicle. Traveling across the desert landscape, adorned with sagebrush and creosote bush, the road soon enters the wide Churchill Canyon. The tall, red canyon walls slope gently upwards, enclosing the trail, and a few pinyon and juniper trees dot the wash at the bottom of the canyon. This arid landscape within the red rock canyon is quite scenic. Special Attractions: Easy going road through scenic Churchill Canyon. Road within a network of 4WD trails to explore. Old cabin remains.
