Trail Overview

The West Silica Hill Access Road is known locally as a western access point to the Rock Top "Pipeline" SFR 233 and Silica Hill Road SFR 645. It is made of course gravel at base, traversing over a couple steep hills, featuring, a creek crossing, loose rock, water collection spots, ruts and dirt/mud. When headed east you will climb two steep grades, and trek down one. The steepest grade corners and snakes though tight trees, while throwing ruts and slick dirt into the mix.
