Black Canyon Road & Cedar Canyon Road
Rock Spring Loop Trail
This 1-mile loop trail starts at Bert Smith's Rock House and passes by Rock Spring. Wayside exhibits describe the history of Mojave Indian use and the United States Army. Located on Cedar Canyon Road, 5 miles east of the intersection with Black Canyon Road (or 10 miles west of the intersection with Lanfair Road) a signed turn-off leads south to the trailhead and parking area.
About 2 miles west of Black Canyon Road at the north end of Wild Horse Canyon Road, Mid Hills supports pinyon-juniper woodland habitat. The effects of a fire that swept through the area in June 2005 are still evident, although several campsites in the popular campground still contain shady stands of pinyon pine and juniper.
