Looks like a couple of miles of boulders. There is no getting through there except on foot.

We stopped here, and could have driven maybe another 200 yards further.

N33 06.554

W116 14.832


There might be something else passable, in one of the other canyons, but this was the only one marked on the maps as a legal trail.

At that point where I'm standing on the rock the canyon curves to the left, narrows and there's a wall of bigger boulders. As Jeff said, there may be a way around in another canyon but it wouldn't be a legal trail and wheeled exploration may wind up getting the entire section closed off which is why we didn't take that route

After the Superstition Run in January there's a couple of more old trails that are worthy of exploration. There's a story about an old trail off the Fish Creek Loop....

I have hiked up there on foot, there are a couple of other canyons in that area that would make for great wheeling, but my dad and I agreed that obstacle is impassable without modification.

That was a fun trail, ran it to the end and then back, crossed over to Ocotillo Wells side. tried to get lunch... looks like the resturants out there are out of business?? Great day 70s sunny and warm just the way I like it.

No didn't think it would be wise. Did go the extra 200ft. could have kept going, but figured we would have to turn back anyways.
