Overview

Dogs: Off-leash

Description

After climbing up out of Black Canyon, you are treated with a long descent down a wash. The trail is fun all the way to the Owens Valley.

Heading north, the doubletrack soon fades away into a trail. It sidecuts along the ridge for a while, before dropping into a wash for the best part of the trail.

Too soon, you come out into a meadow, where you could make a right for Poleta Ridge. Instead, continue down for a bit more canyon running.

Just after, you'll make a short climb out of the wash and descend a loose trail. It turns around up a short climb out of another wash and around to a traverse of some talus.

You'll come out at a mine and descend some doubletrack down a ridge. This takes you into the Poleta OHV area. If you can, follow the track or find a good route on your own, you can go most of the way through it on loose, singletrack.
