Route Overview

Adventure Rating: Epic

Trip Length: 217 miles, 3-5 days

Season: Year round, but October - April is recommended to avoid the summer heat.

Alternative Routes: n/a A Note about Through Passage: At the southern end of the route, there is a parcel of private property owned by Castle Dome Mine Museum. Typically the museum leaves their gates unlocked, but occasionally they are locked. We recommend calling ahead to the museum to confirm the gates will be open (please stop by to support them as well!).
