Trail Overview

A dead-end sign can be found at the beginning of the road on the north end. Heading south, you will drive past some seasonal cabins. The road is seasonal as well at this point and will be difficult in winter. The road down to the intersection is rough and has a few small washes. At the intersection, the road to the left is private but straight ahead is an abandoned road. This section has several large washes and narrow one-lane tracks due to the high banks on either side. Downed trees could also be an issue at times. Toward the bottom of the road, the washes become deeper and anything that isn't lifted will bottom out. 4x4 is required for the abandoned section. The south entrance has a small gatekeeper where the town built the road up and there is an 18- to 24-inch drop into the first wash. The road comes out on Depot Street and there are signs stating the road is abandoned.

Difficulty

The northern section of the road is a rougher seasonal section with some small washes and hills. This will be challenging in colder conditions and snow. The abandoned section south of the intersection requires 4x4 with some lift and bigger tires, unless you don't mind bottoming out. A section of the road has steep banks on either side and narrows the road to single-lane. There is a chance for downed trees. The south end of the road has several deeper washes 10 to 16 inches deep and a gatekeeper at the south entrance. It is an area where the town built the street up and it drops down 18 to 24 inches into the first wash as you head north.
