Sleeping Princess OHV Trail

This challenging off-highway vehicle (OHV) trail climbs up to the top of the Black Mountains for 3.2 miles and gains approximately 1,600 feet in elevation. A variety of conditions contribute to its treacherous attributes including steepness, off-camber, narrow passages, loose surfaces, sharp turns and ledges/drop-offs. At the top of the trail, visitors can enjoy spectacular views of Lake Mohave and the surrounding mountains. It's a great trail ride for the hardcore jeeper!

Recommended vehicles are non-stock four wheel drives and four wheel drives with short wheel base. Experienced operators of ATVs, UTVs and motorcycles may ride the trail. The trail meets a wash at 1.4 miles and continues up the wash for another 1.8 miles to the top of the mountain range.

Weather conditions are most comfortable between the months of September and May. There is no shade or drinking water along the route.
