This trail, although a scenic trail in its own right, provides an easy cut across the Tinajas Altas Mountains that is further to the north than the more popular Tinajas Altas Pass. By combining the earlier parts of El Camino del Diablo’s east and west route with Cipriano Pass, those people who prefer not to camp, or who have less time available, can still sample parts of the historic route. Special Attractions: Alternative entry point to El Camino del Diablo; Remote desert experience; Rugged and beautiful Cabeza Prieta Mountains. High-clearance vehicles are preferred, but not necessary. This trail is dirt roads, but may have rocks, grades, water crossings, or ruts that make clearance a concern in a normal passenger vehicle. The trail is fairly wide, so that passing is possible at almost any point along the trail. Mud is not a concern under normal weather conditions.
