Starting from Sutherland, the trail disappears completely. The only way to navigate is to push your bike and follow GPS. Occasionally you come across a patch of what was once a game trail. Prepare to be shredded by cactus because this is pure Bushwhack. The bottom half is primitive but fun -- if you like old school tech. I didn't try it but maybe coming up CowPie is a good approach. Sutherland was a horrible way.
