Trail Overview

This is a great trail that leads you to Granite Bend of Black River. There are several washouts on the main gravel of this trail but are easily passable, there are also several low water crossings with concrete bottoms that were about 6-12' deep. This trail is a single-lane trail for the most part with room to pass other vehicles you may meet. Once you are approximately 3 miles in you will continue straight onto Lone Bee (3824B) if you want to access Black River. At this point, the trail is crossing a flat field with several mud holes that all seem to have a bottom along with a way around the holes. You will continue back into the woods and will drive next to the river before gaining access to a very large gravel bar that is solid.


The main trail (FS3824) is easily passable by any 4x4 vehicle. When entering FS3824B you will encounter several low spots that have been played in and are deep in spots but have ways around them.
