This ride is 7.3 miles to the top of Hagerman Pass from the Turquoise Lake Road. The first 3.5 miles of road are passable by 2 WD vehicles, the remainder is open to four wheel drive vehicles. Be prepared for these encounters. This route is very rocky and it is recommended that your bike be fitted with shocks for greater enjoyment. Spectacular views and outrageous wildflowers make the rough ride well worth the effort.
