Trail Overview

This starts off as an access improved dirt road. It quickly climbs in elevation with multiple switch backs. You then pass through a closed cattle gate and begin the trail. This is high clearance 4x4 with creek crossings, and tree roots. The best and prettiest time to go is at the end of spring and beginning of summer. You can end this route by dropping into Silver City for a beer and burger.
