Trail Overview

Easy wide dirt trail mostly through private property with access to National Forest land and dispersed camping at the end. The first third of the trail is a smooth dirt road that can get muddy and slick when wet after a rain storm. Higher up, the trail gets bumpy with a more rocky road surface, but nothing challenging. Any 2WD passenger car can easily make it. The last part of the trail, close to the national forest access, has many large potholes, and the drive is slow going. However, the views of the mountains are stunning and well worth the trip up. There is a wide-open valley at the trail's end with lots of dispersed camping. A few nice spots are right on a river. There is also a popular hiking trail at the end. However, this road would have no winter maintenance but appears to be open to snowmobiles. There is no cell service on this trail.
