Trail Overview

A mostly well-graded and narrow trail. Some pullouts to pass. The trail starts in the valley south of Painted Rocks Lake. The Tarmac ends and this one begins. You follow along the creek for a little bit before you ascend the side of the mountain through a variety of switchbacks. As you climb, you are rewarded with beautiful views of the mountain range and the valleys. Treed woods clear to a burned-out forest, allowing for vast views. It could be impassable in the winter. No Verizon cell service is available.


Mostly flat graded, switchbacks, narrow in parts, and cliffside drops with no guard rail. Some pullouts to pass oncoming vehicles.
