Camelbak Rd. is at the base of Bull Mountain. The pavement turns to dirt and continues to head west, along the south faces of the mountain. The road is quite rocky a good portion of the time, with smooth stretches of walking sparse. I took the road to the saddle, which is positioned just past the southwestern cliffs of Bull Mountain. There is a nice view back down canyon towards Kingman, as well as to the hills/peaks/mountains to the west. This was my turnaround point. I could see that the road continues on, dropping steeply (about 200 feet in 0.12 miles), turns left and then steeply climbs up the hill, with what appeared to be another nasty grade. I went down about 100 vertical feet or so to get a feel, then turned around and headed back the way I came.

I studied an online satellite/topo map and it appears the road continues on for several more miles, all the way to the residential developments of Golden Valley on the east side of the 93. About another 1.3 miles from the saddle will position you about a quarter mile from Mayswell Peak, at elevation 5,020 feet. I don't know if the peak (5,157 to 5,180 feet, depending on the source) can be summitted or not, it looks pretty steep on the topo, but I will investigate on the next trip.
