Glossary -- Two-Track Dirt Roads

Two-track dirt roads are legal places where people have driven enough times to form a road, but the ground has never been graded. Two-track roads my require 4WD or not, but the appearance is two ruts carved in the desert by tires.

Two-track dirt roads usually require a high-clearance vehicle because of bushes growing on the hump between the tire tracks and because of rocks hiding behind the bushes.

General Caution: When out driving, remember that as long as your vehicle keeps moving, everything will be fine. But the minute it stops because of flat tires, a busted oil pan, or just stuck in the sand, your life can be in danger. Be prepared with enough food and water, and stay with your vehicle. It is easier for rescue personnel to find a vehicle than it is to find a hiker. Lie on the ground under your vehicle for shade.
