Trail Overview

This trail ascends all the way to Pilot Peak lookout tower at 8,090 Ft in elevation. This trail is rocky and rough with snow banks and downed trees still present in mid-June. Most of the trail is one lane where you want to take note of slightly wider points to reverse to if you incur oncoming traffic. The trail is steep and low range is recommended. The trail takes you nearly 2,000 feet above the starting point on Highway 21. There are great camping spots along the route and once you reach the turnoff to the Pilot Peak there are other forest roads that take you further to other remote camp areas.

Difficulty

This trail is a 1 lane steep and rocky road with occasional boulders tall enough to strike the bottom of normal high-clearance vehicles.
