Access Info

Access from Santa Rosa road, take the "Lower Dewdney Access" found on here on Trail forks. DO NOT access from Dupee Road. New land owner (Robert) does not want traffic on his private property. NO SHUTTLING UP DUPEE! Power lines are his property, so you can't just skip through with your 4x4 4runner.

This trail is Unsanctioned, Ride at your own Risk!

      Recent rains have tacked up the trail in the covered parts, still dry along the open sections, lowest switchback can bite back!

      open rocky and sandy sections are very dry, careful in the corners they are starting to blow out. Shady areas are still tacky.
