Trail Overview

This track connects the Arco Pass Road to Wood Canyon Trail to the Arco Pass to Hurst Canyon Trail. You are in the Challis National Forest at elevations between 6300 and 7800. If you're here before May 1, you may encounter snow on the trails and in the forests. If it's rained recently, it will be muddy. Erosion occurs with heavy run-off. This track ends where we hit too deep of snow to get through, but the trails go beyond our track if you're here later than early May.

Difficulty

Mud and snow are the only obstacles on this trail in the springtime. It's an easy trail in the middle of summer.
