Trail Overview

This is a scenic road that leads to the top of Desert Mountain where you can get a spectacular nearly 240 degree view of the surrounding area at an elevation of 6,415. There is also a very short road that leads to Belton Point once you get to the top. This single lane forest service road is accessed just outside of Martin City where the Hungry Horse Reservoir East road begins. There is a small parking lot at the base of the trail. The road is somewhat maintained but there are some places with ruts, rocky areas, and some spots that could be muddy after recent rain. Nearing the top of the mountain, the road has steep drop offs which may cause some people concern but there is a full vehicle width of road.
