Access All cars, park roadside close to mile 49.9.
A nice loop hike around the Sweeney pass along Jojoba wash and Sin Nombre wash.

This GPS only hike starts going up a wider sandy wash, at the end encountering some catclaw.
Crossing over on the mesa, heading down into Jojoba wash. Leave it at point 'Fork'.
Cross the S2 heading down a somewhat rocky drainage.
Turning north/west into a Sin Nombre fork. At the wash road, turn left (west) and follow the road.
Leave the road, heading over a saddle, going down a drainage with some rocks, cross the S2 and head back towards the car.

The file contains a shortcut, shaving off about half an hour.
