Mottino Wash is basically a 1.5 mile rock garden with tight turns which require pivoting on large rocks. Rock sliders are highly recommended to avoid body damage. The rocks are also very sharp so tire damage is a possibility. There is about 3.7 miles of dirt road and 7 miles of wash to get to Mottino Wash.
