Trail Overview

This trail will take you to the base of some large mountains, offering beautiful scenery, overland camping opportunities, and the ability to hike further up the mountain once you get to the end of the 4x4 trail. Halfway up the trail, there is a snowmobile shelter with an outhouse.


The trail is easy with dirt as the surface type and becomes harder with rocks/loose rock as the surface type after you pass the snowmobile shelter. It's a single vehicle wide trail throughout the route and becomes narrow after the snowmobile shelter.
