Trail Overview

Essentially a rough gravel road, this is a curvy and pot-hole-filled mountain road that forks off of Wilson Creek Divide Road. You'll likely want to air down your tires so as to not rattle your bones or bolt-ons off, this is one bumpy and unmaintained road. There aren't any real obstacles, the main thing to look out for is the washout humps that can act as speed bumps and give you some unpredictable air time if you're not looking out.
