Trail Overview

This is a minimal/no maintenance trail in the Northwest quadrant of Chippewa National Forest, Trail # 2513. High Clearance, low range transfer case, and winch recommended. A vehicle shouldn't be too tall as there can be significant low-hanging branches and fallen trees. This trail will touch your top, bottom, left, and right sides, sometimes all at the same time. Expect pinstriping. There are a few deep holes with standing water/mud. Be prepared to move a fallen tree or two using straps or a winch.
