Located to the east of Baldwin Dry Lake, Horsethief Flat is a hidden valley located at the end of a steep, winding trail (FS Road 3N03A). While not overly difficult, the long climb out can be technical, as well as a challenge to cooling systems.
Trail Rating: MODERATE
Moderate trails are best suited for upgraded 4X4’s with at least one traction device, preferably a “hard” locker, and at least 33″ tires. Body damage is not likely, however rocker panel protection may come in handy for the occasional obstacle. Airing down for traction is recommended, so tire deflators and a method to air back up would be helpful. Trails may also get a Moderate rating for having long, sustained climbs which may tax cooling systems. Be sure your vehicle is in good working order, travel in groups and carry recovery gear and emergency equipment.
