Trail Overview
Steel Bender Loop Route
This is a very challenging trail with one particular ledge that has become impossible for most Jeeps. The trail is particularly difficult for ATVS and UTVs as the switchbacks descend. Please avoid the illegal bypass that has been used by some in the past. A wilderness study area surrounds this trail and must be avoided.
Getting There
Take Highway 191 south from town about 3 miles and turn left on Spanish Trail Road at gas station. Continue straight through roundabout and climb winding Westwater Drive another mile. Turn right on marked trail just before gate to private subdivision.
