We want to thank Bill Algeyer over at JK southwest for sharing this neat trip into Cabin Canyon. This could be a real nail biter. And of course the weather could make it worse. Below is a link to a combination of trails in this same area.

Cabin Canyon Road is a 4WD adventure that runs southeast from Mesquite, Nevada and crosses the Virgin Range, and drops into Grand Canyon - Parashant National Monument. The road is considered to be a graded road, which is true until the next storm or the winter snows, but the road runs over bedrock in places where a grader is not the necessary equipment. Even so, the worst of the road is high in the mountains, and the lower reaches usually are suitable for 2WD, medium-clearance vehicles. Editor's note: "This is a 4WD adventure".
This road can be used as part of the loop circumnavigating Virgin Peak. Starting in Mesquite, drivers can head southeast into Arizona, then loop back over Whitney Pass and return through Gold Butte National Monument to Mesquite. Otherwise, drivers can just continue south into the wilds of the Great-Back-of-Beyond.
