I finally did it! This trail has been on my list for many years, but hasn’t fit into my schedule until now. I invited a few others to go with me but it was short notice and I decided what the hell, and went anyway. I figured there would be others out there and I was right. What a great adventure. The JT was flawless and so was my trailer. No mechanical issues whatsoever. I used a combo of Gaia, Trails Offroad and the Mojave Road Guide book to stay on course. Route finding can be confusing because the trail has changed over the years and different maps point you in different directions. The east half of the trail is scenic and pretty quiet, but the west half is busy, bumpy and much slower going, so I really liked the east side better. Anyway, here’s a bunch of pics, and I'm happy to answer any questions you want to ask.

Saturday morning we took a hike up the canyon to Giant Ledge Mine. The trail gets gnarly and is blocked by a huge boulder.

Took a peek inside and found tracks and an ore chute

Sand dunes. It was getting dark and was quite challenging finding our way through here.

The infamous water crossing. I was nervous all day because I knew this was coming. Luckily the water was low and only up to the rockers. No problem!

Camp at Afton Canyon Campground which is right after the crossing.
