This old logging road is closed to motorized vehicles. In places it is overgrown but there is still a path to ride a bike through the trees or sagebrush on the roadbed. It connects the fence line trail on the Squaw Creek-Payne Creek divide down to the Payne Creek Road. There may be down trees across the trail in spots. The upper part starts at the gate in the fence and crosses to the north side of the fence and goes east several hundred feet before topping out and entering the timber and heading downhill. There are no signs so a GPS track is helpful.

Access Info

The lower end of the trail is accessed by the south end of the Payne Creek Road.
