Trail Overview

This short ATV trail is one of several ATV trails in the Caribou National Forest between Malad and Preston, Idaho. The trails in this area can be ridden as a fun day ride in combination with other jeep roads or single track. On the west end of the trail, it departs from Third Creek Road, a dirt road, and continues along a fence in a field of yellow wildflowers. It drops into a dark overgrown wooded hollow full of skinny deciduous trees. It turns right on a wider two track (follow signs for 441) that takes you to the intersection with the 7443 single track. There are two small creek crossings before this intersection that are shallow and easy. Continue past the intersection with the single track, and the next section of trail is wider two-track through a shaded section of woods above a creek. The mosquitoes are really bad in the spring here. After this the trail becomes significantly more challenging with very steep climbs and switch backs. You have to keep momentum for the steep climbs with loose rock and small roots and tight switch backs. It has a series of climbs and descents up and over the rolling hills. There are also some muddy spots in the spring and summer as there is running water through the trail from the creeks.

Difficulty

This is an easy trail for a dirt bike, but the steep climbs and switch backs would be more challenging for an ATV.
