This is a sizeable BLM area primarily dedicated to rock climbing. The area is 80+ percent fire roads with a good amount of ATV track and just a smidge of singletrack thrown in. There is a network of attached loops and a lot of dead-end out and backs to contend with. There's no real prescribed route--this is an area to just spin cranks, explore and enjoy the varied and very interesting scenery. From the parking area, take either fork and go up--when you reach an intersection, pick a direction and go--While there's not a lot of trails, there this is a big enough area that getting lost is a possibility--a map and compass are highly recommended. Most intersections are signed, some are not, and those that are only indicate the designation for one of the three or four trails available, so they may leave you scratching your head without another reference.
