Trail Overview

Cool terrain, fun side roads and beautiful views treat you on this trail inside Roosevelt National Forest. It is open all year, so get your rig ready, grab your friends and head up for a great snow run.


Difficult. This rating applies to just the last part of trail. The first 4 miles is easy and uneventful. After that, the route gradually gets tougher and more interesting. Left at Waypoint 02 leads to a network of shelf roads that are narrow for Jeeps but perfect for ATVs, UTVs and dirt bikes.
