Trail Overview

This trail climbs over 500 feet to the top of Fairmont Peak Tower. The route is rocky and uneven. Although a shorter route, airing down is highly recommended. Slow speeds are also recommended. Many rocks are sharp. Flats have been known to happen. There are views of solar arrays, adjacent valleys, and many wildflowers in the spring season. The north approach is gradual but rocky. The south side is very rocky and very steep. 4-low and 1st gear are highly recommended. Be aware of others going up and down. Parts of the trail are only one vehicle wide.

Difficulty

From below, the trail can appear easier than when you're up on the ridgeline and coming down. For a shorter route, you will be tempted to skip airing down. The very bumpy ride due to the uneven surfaces and rocky terrain will get you out and airing down before you get too far. The rocks can be sharp at times. Flats do occur. The south side is very steep and rocky. Sliding is a hazard.
