This is a road to trail conversion of a road that previously suffered frequent washouts. Some old guidebooks will route you as if this road is still in use - surprise, it's not. The northern end has limited parking and no services of any kind. The lower end is merely a trail connection. In the past, this trail could be used to add miles (3 miles each way) to the Dungeness Gold Creek loop, and save a bit of driving. More recently, the trail has suffered a lack of maintenance that makes it an unattractive option.

This is an OHV trail as well as a mountain bike trail

       The description is for the actual Gold creek trail. This “extension” is the old road 2860. It’s washed out, overgrown and has a scary land slide section you have to hike around. It used to be a good way to cut your driving time and add a few miles to the Dungeness/ Gold creek loop but not anymore
