Trail Overview

This trail is the portal to several wonderful adventures in this area. There are trailheads with parking areas for a limited number of vehicles with trailers on either end. Red Rock Road has more parking space. There are great views and opportunities to see wildlife. Included with this track are two side trails that should not be missed. Each will take you to exceptional views of Henry's Lake and the surrounding area. These are great picture-taking opportunities for families or groups.

Difficulty

Overall this is a relatively easy trail that can be traveled by most 4x4 pickups and recreational vehicles. There are rocks, small ledges, steep rocky areas, and small water crossings. This area can also become very muddy during precipitation. For the snowmobile fans this is a hidden gem that is little known.
