Trail Overview

Convenient, but very challenging, connector road between Coffee Pot Road and Transfer Trail. You will drop down from a high ridge and ride through old Grizzly Cow Camp. This is a fun ride for unlicensed vehicles with a few options for dispersed camping, which are used by hunters in the fall. Open mid-June to mid-November, depending on snow.

Difficulty

Difficult. Narrow in spots with deep ruts and muddy patches. A difficult stretch starts at Waypoint 03 with a steep descent down a rocky ledge, then continues through an overgrown area with deep, twisting ruts. Most stock, high-clearance 4x4 SUVs can get through, but be careful when muddy.
