Trail Overview

This longer trail is mostly straightforward. However, the map shows a spaghetti of trails in the area. Most of them seem to be gated old logging roads. Many show evidence of fire rings and people camping in these pullouts. A keen eye will spot Deer, Elk, small rodents, and maybe even a Bear. Be aware of late spring and early autumn snow. There is also a strong possibility of clearing trees in the spring after a storm to make the road passable. Once at the summit, though, the views are 360o and worth any difficulty getting there. Stop and stay a while and watch the clouds roll by. You won't be disappointed. There are two bars of cell service at the very top, but none on the way.


Mostly easy, some narrow section with very little room to pass oncoming. Progress may be halted by snow or downed trees.
