Starting from the north end at the intersection you will head southwest toward the Wolford Mountain group across open brush land.
You will come to an intersecton. The left road is the continuation of BLM29532 that continues up a small gully on the side of Little Wolford Mountain. It will cross the gully and pass a small stand of trees, pass through a fence line and then head down a ridge and cross another small gully. Past the gully you will pass an intersection with a road on the right which is BLM29531 that goes back up hill, but is not being used. Going left down hill you will connect with County Road 224. Back at the first intersection, if you go right the road will head north. This road is not numbered, but is well used and shown on the BLM map. It will head around the north side of Little Wolford Mountain toward some trees.
The two track road will now turn to the west as it continues up the mountain passing along the side of a forested area. The road will be cut a bit deep and be narrow through this area.
The road will come to the top of a ridge and make a sharp left at a fence line as it makes the final climb to the top of Little Wolford Mountain. At this turn there is a motorcycle trail to the right that goes through the fence and then down to BLM29533.
The road will head through some trees passing a motorcycle trail on the left which will come back into the road further up the road. After driving through the trees you will come out into open land as you make the top of the mountain. From here the road will continue over the top heading toward Wolford Mountain.
From the top you will have views to the east, and west toward Wolford Mountain Reservoir. As you continue you will pass an ATV trail on the right that heads through the fence and then down to BLM29533.
Continue to the left along the top and you will head down along the ridge between the two mountains toward the saddle. This section will get a bit steep and then level out again.
The road will run along a ridge as it heads down to the saddle. You will pass a cross connection. This is where Wolford Mountain Reservoir, BLM29531 comes in from the right through the fence and crosses the ridge. The maps shows it heading down to the left, but the road is not being used to the left.
The road will continue down the ridge with views in all directions before coming to the saddle and the intersection with Wolford Mountain, BLM29530, which goes left down to County Road 224, or right down toward Wolford Mountain Reservoir.
