Trail Overview

This short out and back heads to multiple hiking trailheads and ends at the Pyramid Peak main trailhead. The route is generally wide enough for two rigs to pass and only has potholes for challenges. Since the trailhead at the top has exceptionally equestrian facilities, it makes sense for the road to be in good shape. There is plenty of horse-trailer parking and even a decent pit toilet. The views of the valley and surrounding mountains are spectacular as you work your way up the switchbacks. A few larger pullouts make for a pleasant overnight spot, and there are even a few bars of Verizon LTE cellular service. Be sure to stop and check out the many small waterfalls of the little creeks you pass on the way up. Be sure to take a look at the off-shoot after the bridge for a hike to the spectacular Morrell Falls.

Difficulty

Easy gravel road with some potholes. There is lots of room to pass oncoming, but there may be no winter maintenance.
