Trail Overview

This access trail is freakishly well maintained for how little traffic it appears to have. Most of the route is flat and wide enough for two cars to pass. The occasional sandy washout will test your suspension. Most of the trail runs along the Eagletail wilderness area to the east, with open camping and more routes to explore to the west. The camping spots are plentiful and flat, many with outstanding views of the Ridgeline that lies within the wilderness. Be aware of cattle on the road, as this is also an open grazing range. Near the southern end, the trail narrows significantly is an interesting large water tank that appears to have blown over into the trail. There are a few old corrals along the way. This trail provides a lot of easy access to the expansive network of trails in the area. It is a perfect jumping-off point for adventure. There are a few bars of Verizon LTE in the area in the northern section and none near the southern leg. Be sure to download offline maps before you arrive.


This trail is primarily wide and easy with a few washouts.
