Trail Overview

Short out and back dirt trail with dispersed camping at the end along the river and stunning mountain views. Some of the dispersed spots are larger campsites that can accommodate multiple vehicles or trailers and have metal fire rings, most have views out to the mountains across Hwy 74. The Harriman Trail runs across the driving trail a little way in, watch for cross traffic. Also a great spot if looking for access to the Harriman Trail.
