This is an all-wheel-base, full day run with lots of history thrown in. Due to some erosion of the trail, it is advisable to have at least 31" tires and a traction aiding device of some kind in the rear, such as a limited slip diff, a selectable locking diff, or a full locked diff. After airing down at the Ballarat Ghost Town it’s off to Goler Wash where you will see Newman's Cabin. After crossing over Mengle Pass into Death Valley where you will see Rustle Camp, Greater View Cabin, Striped Butte and the Geology Cabin. If time allows, consider taking taking a run into the Barker Ranch where the Manson Family lived and Manson hide out from the law.
