This trail, which passes through the Little Horn Mountains, is less frequently used than many of the trails within the Kofa National Wildlife Refuge, but no less scenic. It is one of only four 4WD trails that exits the refuge to the east. The trail starts by leaving Engesser Pass Trail and proceeds along a formed, single-track trail to the east, keeping south of the main bulk of the Little Horn Mountains. Like most of the trails within the refuge, this one is rough and ungraded with its main challenge coming from loose surfaces and deep gravelly wash crossings. Special Attractions: Prominent Coyote Peak; Panoramic views across the Ranegras Plain to four mountain ranges. 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.
