Trail Overview

This narrow trail starts wider but has plenty of trees growing into it that may cause paint damage. The first half is a little loose and rocky, with a few tight corners. The midway point is a significant turnaround/ camping/ trailhead area with excellent views. This open area is the Medicine Point trailhead, and a solid 3.8-mile hike will lead you to the epic views of medicine point lookout tower. Past this point, the trail becomes a shelf road with steep drop-offs, downed trees, and large bushes that may make wider vehicles uncomfortably close to the edge. This section appears to be far less traveled. There is nowhere to pull over for oncoming traffic, ending at a decent-sized turnaround point where one could camp. There is full LTE service at the top. One bar at the beginning.

Difficulty

Mostly easy until the parking area trail head, after that gets very narrow and shelf, with off-camber trees to go around on the shelf side of the trail.
