Phillips Canyon trail is a fun loop in the Calico Mountains that is not too difficult, but has enough obstacles to make you feel like you accomplished something. The views from the trail are some of the best in the area. There are some steep sections and a little bit of rock crawling, but nothing that a modified Jeep can't handle. Stock Jeeps can make it, but will require a little more careful planning on some the areas. Bottom scraping is a real possibility. Phillips Canyon is like the little brother loop to the Odessa-Doran Loop and a good alternative to hose not wanting to tear up their Jeep on Odessa-Doran. There are many other side trails all over the area to explore. Be sure to use a GPS device to make a track of where you are driving as it is easy to get confused about which trail goes where.
