Trail Overview

The trail is fairly easy when conditions are good; when muddy or snowy, it becomes more difficult. There are some ruts to contend with in areas, a couple of steep short climbs, and in the wintertime, there is a section where it is very icy on the west end of the trail as you head downhill. Along this trail, there are designated areas where you are permitted to target shoot.

Trail is very crowded with shooters. Every pull out was full for miles. Road is in pretty rough condition due to large ruts and muddy conditions. The amount of traffic it is getting doesn't help. Not an enjoyable drive due to the number of people on it.
