General Location Maps Contacts Area Management Wilderness Laws Trip Planning Images


Take Interstate 10 to exit 126 and travel south on the Estrella Parkway for 8.3 miles, take Elliot Road west for 2.6 miles turning left on Rainbow Valley Road for 9.4 miles. Turn left going east on Riggs Road for 4 miles to Bullard Avenue. Cross the road (jogging just a little south) and continue east, following the unsigned dirt road that parallels the power lines. Proceed 5.3 miles east, then turn south at the "T" intersection, where a small sign indicates the direction to an unnamed trail. Proceed south two miles, then turn east on another unsigned dirt road. Follow it 1.9 miles to the trailhead. Only the western boundary of the wilderness is accessible to the public. Due to land ownership patterns, legal access is not assured.
