Description

Much like 10 Minutes of Hell to the north, Grim Road connects the Lost Dog trails to Transmountain Drive. The trail begins as a fork to the east from Brujos near the base of a large hill. After a short winding segment, Grim Road turns to parallel a dry creekbed just out of sight to the north of the trail, climbing steadily towards the Franklin Mountains.

After the turn, the path straightens but becomes much rockier and more uneven. This continues for the remainder of the trail, making for a challenging climb. Careful attention is required, as this is one of more technical trails in the area. Turnoffs to Lechugilla Trail and Baby Head are located near the end of Grim Road before it finishes at Transmountain Drive. Connections to a few other trails in the area can be made by continuing along the highway in the bike lane.

Flora & Fauna

The Franklins are filled with desert wildlife and you'll have the chance to see all sorts of plants and animals on a hike. Vegetation is best during the rainy months around summer when the desert blooms and the plants turn green. Jackrabbits, lizards and roadrunners are common, occasionally snakes will be on or near the trail. Watch for rattlers and give them a wild berth. If you get caught out past sundown, you may hear a few coyotes. Their howls are unnerving, but they generally leave people alone.

This trail is somewhat harder to hike because of all the loose rocks. Not very scenic but good views of the surrounding area. 0.8mi — 0h 25m
