This is an old mine road that climbs the west side of Nez Perce/McGillivray Ridge to the open meadows on the ridge top. It connects to the Nez Perce Ridge trail and is much less of a grunt than continuing up the Nez Perce Road to the top of that trail. However, the mine road ends out on the open ridge and there is a short push up the steep grassy slope to the Nez Perce Ridge trail.
Follow the Nez Perce Road for 2 km north from the pipeline crossing. After crossing two bridges and just before a steep hill, take a right fork into a logged area and ford the creek. Then turn right on a very rough track heading south on the east side of the creek. This trail soon merges into an old mine road along the east side of the Nez Perce Creek valley as it zig-zags to the top of the ridge.
