Trail Overview

This is a great dirt bypass if one is trying to remain off Highway 21. It does run through private property and cattle grazing land. There are three gates to open and close and expect to run into herds of cattle. Half of this trail is well maintained as it runs through large ranch homes, the other half through the grazing land is rutted, and then there is the creek water crossing close to Sheep Trail Campground. One of the gates opens right into the water crossing. If you're coming from the campground, the creek will have to be crossed, and a vehicle will have to remain in the water to open the gate. If you're coming from grazing land, the gate will open into the water, and it can be complicated to get your vehicle through and then close the gate. Water height can change throughout the season; approach with caution. There is no cell service out here.
