Access is extremely easy from holman rd trailhead. just head straight west past the port a potty if you are climbing this trail. recommended riding pattern is clockwise riding iller east up then iller west down. first few miles up trail is quite wide, and flat but gets steep quick. damp and lots of leaves make this trail absolutely awesome in the summer when everything else is dry but slippery in fall and winter. access from the top of rocks of sharon head north down hill towards tower mountain then just as you begin to head up hill take the right (west fork). about 1/3 way down this trail connects with the mid valley connector which is super fun and connects west and east iller trails without having to summit rocks of sharon which is quite a steep climb but you'll be rewarded with awesome views. heavy hiker use on iller west trail with many off leash dogs so watch out or use trail bell.

      Trail was hard packed and wet. But very stable. At times it was frozen but as the day warmed it became wet and muddy.

       Nice little trail. I climbed it, which was fine, but I think it would be more fun as a descent. Watch for hikers and be nice to other trail users (duh).
