Trail Overview

Traveling this rough clay-based gravel road between Toston and Lombard, you can expect to see range cattle, prickly pear cacti, plenty of sagebrush, and rattlesnakes. Use extreme caution on this road in the rain. Numerous washouts could make it dangerous. As you gain more than 1,300 feet in elevation, the views do get better, but the sheer drop-offs next to you get a little more daunting. Along the way, you will see the remains of an old Milwaukee bridge. A little further down the trail, you will come across the old Lombard Coke Ovens. This road does dead-end but if you come back out past the old bridge, there's a 2nd route that loops back around to Lombard Road.
