Engesser Pass Trail Professional Review and Guide
"This long trail makes a wide loop through the Kofa National Wildlife Refuge and encompasses a wide variety of scenery. It commences at the east end of Central #3: King Valley Road in the historic Kofa Mining District. The remains of the Kofa Mine can be seen from the start of the trail; however, the area is privately owned and there is no admittance to the mines. Special Attractions: Easy trail that runs along wide Hoodoo Wash; Historic Wilbanks Cabin; Can be combined with Bighorn Pass for a loop trail. 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."
