The large, blocky Mohave Mountains are intersected by narrow washes that cut into them. This trail travels up one main wash and two smaller spurs to the slopes of the mountain. There are no trails that climb over the mountains because of the steep face on the northern side. Special Attractions: Stone ruin at Scotts Well; Wide variety of Mohave Desert scenery. 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.
