Trail Overview

This trail is a well-maintained grated dirt trail up to the Johnson Peak Trailhead and McCart Lookout Tower. The trail ends at a large pullout for parking or dispersed camping. There are stock ties, and at the time this trail was run, a 19 ft bumper pull was at the trailhead camping along with six horses tied to the stock ties. The trail leisurely makes its way up the mountain, starting more in the dense trees and opening up to stunning views as the trail nears the top. Most of the other side shoot trails off this one have closed gates. No winter maintenance. There is no cell service in this area.


Washboard and potholes, wide enough for one vehicle with ample spots to pass oncoming
