Eldorado Jeep Trail

March 31, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

The Eldorado Jeep Trail (EJT) is just off of Hwy. 95 about halfway between Kingman, AZ and Vegas.  After approximately two miles from the pavement a slight turn to the right will get you onto the EJT.  My friend Steve and I have been down this road before on our quads.  Unlike most of the trails Steve and I explored, the EJT is wide enough for a Jeep although there a couple of  tight spots along the road.  It is easily driven with just a few areas of deep sand that did not pose a problem for me.

After winding through the Black Mountains, the trail ends at the Colorado River on the north end of the Mohave Lake.  Upon my arrival at Lake Mohave, I climbed up a ridge to get a better view of the lake.  Between where I parked and the river was mucho vegetation and was one of the reasons for the climb.  Luckily, there was nobody there so I just enjoyed the serenity, walked around a bit and ate my bologna sandwich.

After just hanging out, it was time to return.  On the way out I encountered a young couple down from Vegas.  They seemed very nice and asked me if there was anybody else down at the river.  Told them there was nobody else along the road or at the river and off they went.
