Hinckley Basin Fire Road is a low-travelled route. It connects Olive Springs paved road to the Sand Point Lookout. Finding the entrance of the road off Olive Springs takes a little looking as there is no signage. The road starts with fording a creek. As you climb it gets pretty darn steep a couple times, and while it's a fire road, the surface can be rutted with the seasons.
