Puck81 ... I would expect that you wouldn't have trouble getting all the way to the top from the Pahrump side. It's mostly packed dirt, with the biggest obstacles being motorcyclists going around corners way too fast.

While my write-ups may not be the most compelling, I need to work on that, I do have a lot of trails that I've done, with more being added each week. Check it out here:

http://www.davidson-law.net/blogs/jeeplaw

As of right now, 78 trails in southern Nevada / Northwest AZ have been listed, with GPS tracks for each from my own unit. I've done all of these in the last 18 months. On the top, hover your mouse over the Jeep Trails link for a drop down menu for Clark and Mohave Counties.

I like the offroadinghome website as well, it's what gave me that idea to start my own. However, he's biased towards 4-wheelers, as that is what he rides. You have to be careful with his stuff, because many of the trails are too narrow for most jeeps (or jeepers).

Yes road is open. The land owner got her signs and clean up. But if the side by sides keep tearing it up as bad as they where this weekend it will not be long before there is another issue.

I came across this short trail on Google Earth: 3556'42.54"N , 11438'43.34"W

Does anyone know if it is for public use?

Also, if there a way to upload places from Google Earth to my Garmin GPS? I know it can be done from Google Maps.

Thanks for the compliment. I'm working on expanding it and now that it's getting a little less hot I'll be out a lot more. If you can't find something that you're looking for, shoot me a line. I've ridden stuff that I haven't been able to blog about yet, and I'm always looking for the next set of trails to ride.
