The Domelands Trail

The Domelands Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Caught in the grip of faults and folds, the corrugated landscape of “The Domelands” exposes millions of years of geologic history. This is a good place to view marine fossils aplenty, but you can’t collect samples. The area lies in the Coyote Mountains Wilderness, which protects all natural resources—be they animal, vegetable, or paleontological. This hike, a “cherry stem” loop that involves a long out-and-back approach and a rambling loop at the end, takes you into the heart of what the BLM has designated as an Area of Critical Environmental Concern. Your concern should be to tread as lightly as possible over landscape."

This is an amazing place. I went backpacking here and made a video of the area. Here is the link http://www.vimeo.com/20672180

The Domelands are a great area to explore as a backpacking trip. Leave the tent at home and sleep in one of the many wind caves found naturally in this area. A hidden, 1/2 mile long slot canyon exists north of the main wind cave area. No path leads to this slot, but explore north, where the mountains fall into the badlands.
