Been following a trail from Indian Hill in the direction of North-East. Its hit or miss where off-roaders mangled it up. But you can still follow by the way the rocks are pushed aside. The area pf the Piepkorn slot area is its just disappears. I thought perhaps it dropped into the wash north of Red Hill. Nope. This weekend I found more. Trail tags the bluff north of the wash. There's 2 miles of it. Drops down where the Jojoba wash crosses S2. Wonder why these trails are usually always on hill sides or on the crest of the hill and not in the washes? Wheres is the final destination ?












Its a well defined trail disappears in lava rocks but it can be picked up afterwards.

What Rocko1 said is exactly correct. Many desert trails are thousands of years old and still exist in areas of low erosion.

Is the compaction of soil from years of foot traffic what caused plants not to grow on the paths?



Not always. hehe
