Trail Overview

This offshoot trail from FR 09 leads to a couple of trailheads - Hitt Creek Trailhead and Keithy Saddle Trailhead. Hitt Creek Trailhead (Trail No. 276) is accessible to bikes and ATVs and is an alternative route to the Sturgil Lookout Tower. If continuing up the trail, unfortunately, there isn't a grand overlook as hoped. The trail literally dead-ends into the hillside and goes no further. At the time of mapping, there were several downed trees on the trail due to a prior storm. Serves as a friendly reminder that trail conditions can abruptly change at any point. A few erosion ruts throughout the trail but nothing too challenging.

Difficulty

There are a few erosions ruts to navigate.
