This road is not the complete track designated as Recreation Road #2. Although it is only the spur that gives access to the lake, it is the most interesting part of the trail. The trail commences on Princess Cove Road, 3.7 miles from the junction with the paved Katherine Landing–Cabinsite Point Road. It is one of a series of designated vehicle trails within the Lake Mead Recreation Area; all are marked by yellow arrows and route numbers. The short, challenging trail winds down to a narrow point jutting out into Lake Mohave. You will have to share the view with a pylon, but it is still a magnificent point. Special Attractions: Challenging trail for smaller stock vehicles; Access to Lake Mohave; Views of the Newberry Mountains. This trail is for experienced four-wheel drivers only. It is potentially dangerous, with large rocks, ruts, or terraces that may need to be negotiated. It may also have stream crossings at least 18 inches deep, involve rapid currents, unstable stream bottoms, or difficult access; steep slopes, loose surfaces, and narrow clearances; or very narrow sections of shelf road with steep drop-offs and potentially challenging road surfaces.
