so it's a rough road. and.... it's an unmaintained old ass road on top of the rim. gets a bunch of seasonal snow and rain. and mostly used by hunters in the fall. i never needed 4wd for any section of the 4 miles in, it was dry.
the trail leading down is the easiest, imho, of the 4 that reach the bottom of chevelon canyon in this area. a straight, mild grade about 1/2 mile to the bottom. here you can find plenty of hanging trees and a few eyesore campspots with fire rings, most of them not 1 yard off the trail. by the way, the fishing here sucks. don't go. it's a waste of time. go to woods canyon instead.

we saw no others at the bottom. caught and released several native trout, 13" being the smallest of the lot.
