This route roughly follows the original bed of the old Mohave and Milltown Railroad. A hiking trail follows the railroad route, while the four-wheel-drive route weaves back and forth across it. Look at the trail markers carefully to see whether they are for hikers or Jeeps. Most of this road is fairly flat and can be driven in a high-clearance two-wheel-drive vehicle. Four-wheel drive may be needed occasionally after heavy rains when ruts and washouts occur. The road is sometimes faint and difficult to find, especially at the west end. Use Boundary Cone as a directional landmark. The trail can also be driven in the opposite direction.
