This long circle trip includes a passage through Split Mountain and a traverse over the arid, eastern extremity of the Vallecito Mountains. For a 3-mile stretch, you’ll negotiate some semi-rugged terrain—a scramble through a narrow ravine and a descent along a rocky ridgeline. The rest involves easy walking on four-wheel-drive roads and along a sandy wash.
