The Mohave & Milltown Railroad West Trailhead accesses the motorized
trails. The parallel routes follow a historic railroad grade for 7 miles. Hikers and mountain bikers travel along the actual railroad grade for most of the way, although detours are sometimes necessary where the grade has washed away from flooding. OHV and equestrian users follow a route which does not lie on the grade, but parallels and frequently crosses the railroad bed.
Both routes are marked with signs and rock cairns. The best season is anytime from September through May. In the event of plentiful winter rain, wildflowers can be abundant February through April.
