Overview

Timber Mountain Pass Road is a well maintained dirt road that normally is suitable for 2WD vehicles. The road starts along Highway 318 north of Hiko and runs southwest over Timber Pass, down across Coal Valley, and ends at an intersection with Seaman Wash Road and Cherry Creek Road at a gap in the Golden Gate Range called Water Gap.

Timber Mountain Pass Road provides access to Michael Heizer's City, the community of Cherry Creek in the Quinn Canyon Range, and it provides sightseers spectacular scenery, ranchers access to their herds, and residents a way home.

Details of this road are presented on the Timber Mountain Pass Road - Eastbound page.
