Picturesque mountain ride to Grizzly Lake with great fishing. Limited camping near the lake, so plan ahead. This is a challenging trail for ATVs and short wheel-based vehicles, especially at the obstacle near the beginning, which may draw spectators.
From Johnson Village, head south on Hwy. 285 about 6 miles. Just past Nathrop, turn right on C.R. 162. Go west 15.4 miles to parking area (with toilet) on left. Immediately after parking area, bear left on C.R. 295. Go 0.2 mile and watch for small road on left (unmarked F.S. 296) . A private drive next to trail entrance usually has “Keep Out” sign and chain across drive. Enter trail immediately left of sign.
