To reach the Boundary Cone Road trailhead, from I-40 in Needles, Calif., take the J Street exit going east. After 0.2 mile take a left on Front Street. Go one block to K Street and take a right. K Street becomes SR 95 here. Follow SR 95 for 8.9 miles, then take a right onto Boundary Cone Road. The trailhead and parking are 9.2 miles ahead on the right side of the road.
Just getting into hiking and found this trail since it’s close to home. Really enjoyed walking this trial and the scenery. Also got a fun surprise by a burrow Only downside I can think of was the trail was a bit difficult to see in a few spots. I’m guessing not a lot of people take it often. But I will definitely be going back.
I m an experienced mountain biker. This is not a rail trail. This is a horrible trail for experienced mountain bikers. The short single track portions r marked by rocks that hit ur pedals! The rest is awful awful awful.
Nothing to see, only Razors and dust.
Definite senior citizens here! Definite newbie mountain bikers since the majority of our cycling experience is of the 'roadie' variety. So, the 'easy' rating for this course doesn't get it for these two. Given those paramenters, we can advise the following. Very well marked trail. Folllow the posts/carins. Lots of rock/ soft washes to traverse (we walked/pushed) before finally getting to the narrow gauge railbed. Can't really focus on the scenery heading west due to focusing on the trail obstacles, which consist of shale, rock and sand washes. Easiet part is the return trip when you are going uphill and can see the awesome mountain scenery in front of you with Boundry Cone being one of the most scenic. Glad we did it in spite of our limitations. The last several entries on the trail log near the parking area were of hikers. Very few transverse this via mountain bike. Maybe we didn't do so bad after all?
Drove to the lower Mohave-Milltown Rail Trail in a Toyota Sienna, to see if it was possible to ride this Trail on my Tri-Cruiser, .
Taking Willow Drive off Hwy 95, continue 1.7 miles after it turns to dirt, the turn off is easy to miss at N34.90958 W114.54285 then two more miles of rough Harpers Wash Road to the
signed TH at N34.92857W114.51589 elev 867’ . Parking off Rd.
The Railroad was constructed in 1903. The gold mining operation was shut down in 1904 Reported that it cost $250,000 to build and made $40,000. The Railroad abandoned in 1913.
Now only a Hiking or Mountain Bike Trail. It provides views of the Mohave Valley and the mountains by Oatman.
The Bike/Hiker TH on Boundary Cone Rd N34.99389 W114.43963 elev 1807’, has parking.
Mountain Bikers may enjoy this trail and then visit the Mining /Tourist town of Oatman, AZ just 4.2 miles above the Boundary Cone Rd TH on Historical Route 66. By Twirlymaker, Noel Keller July 13.
