Trail Overview

Climbing up out of Birch Creek Canyon to join Dry Canyon Road at almost 9,000', this road is a well-maintained gravel Forest Service road. It features a small number of level dispersed camping spots with incredible views of nearby North Toiyabe Peak, which rises up to 10,699'. It is also part of the Gold Venture Loop which passes by a number of mines in the area. This high-country road is not maintained in the winter and will likely be snowbound until late May.
