Happy #firstdayofSpring! As we move into this new season, be sure to follow @leavenotracecenter and @treadlightlyteam guidelines for enjoying your public lands, especially when you’re chasing wildflower blooms.
Pictured here: The Bradshaw Trail National BackCountry Byway, which was the first road across Riverside County to the Colorado River was blazed by William Bradshaw in 1862 as an overland stage route. Beginning in San Bernardino, the trail was used extensively between 1862 and 1877 to haul miners and other passengers to the gold fields at La Paz, Arizona (now Ehrenberg). Four-wheel-drive vehicles are recommended due to stretches of soft sand. The trail traverses mostly public land, and offers spectacular views of the Chuckwalla Bench and the Orocopia, Chuckwalla and Mule Mountains.
