Trail Overview

This section of Quilomene Ridge Road is nice and wide so that it can handle two-way traffic. The road is mostly dirt and rock with scattered mud puddles to play in. If you prefer a cleaner rig, there are alternate paths around most of the mud puddles that we saw. We saw some nice pullouts for dispersed camping along the route. We did see some melting snow in some areas but everything was easily traversed. This route will eventually get you back to town or you can also ingress from this route into the wildlife area.

Snow/Ice
Actual Trip date 2/4/23 Weather changes parts of the trail adding substantial ice to the path, that requires a redirect or skilled driving. Conditions change often depending on the area weather. This trail starts off with an aggressive climb, before semi-leveling out on top, the initial climb and final descents are where we often encounter ice. This trail, although only 24 miles is an all day event in winter, so bring high clearance locked and loaded rigs, 37” tires seem to be the minimum choice, have extra clothing, food, camping & recovery gear, etc, in the event your stay becomes an overnight adventure.

We have rescued people off of this trail including leading a group of 7 vehicles off the mountain we had passed on our way up the mountain on an out and back trip we did (not the full route - we only ran the eastern most route to the stub and back), finding them in the same place we passed them a few hours later.
