Trail Overview

This is an easy road for all vehicles, from open meadows to aspen groves, to burn scar areas. Use caution in burn areas during high winds as trees can blow down. In the wintertime, you'll have a chance of seeing elk and deer as this is a wintering area for them. There is a seasonal closure for wildlife habitat from January 1 to June 1st.
