Trail Overview

The route begins on a two-lane gravel road that eventually works its way down to one. The road can be dusty if it has been dry, but really a great ride if it rained the day before. The route begins at an altitude of 3100' and makes its way to 7300' at the tower base. There is a gate owned by the fire service that is only open from 05/02 - 09/14 in the summer months. There is a actual Fire Tower at the end of the route that is manned full time when it is open. There is only room for 3 or 4 UTVs to park at the base of the tower. Snow can still be on the ground up to July because of the high altitude where the tower is located. On a clear day, you can see for miles from the location of the tower.


This is a very well-kept route by the fire service as there is actually a Fire Tower, that needs to be manned during the summer months. The route is mostly gravel with loose rock in some areas. I wouldn't drive a larger truck to the summit, as there is no room to park or turn around larger vehicles.
