Access Info

Whiskey Fill road to the Swift Creek bridge - start down "Swift Creek #6" (aka Old Swift Creek). Instead of going right up the "Old Swift Creek" trail at the bluff, bear left down the old road which connects to Swift Mountain Road. Cycle up Swift Mountain Road and watch for Y in road, bearing right until you see signs for Poker Run. The trail is fairly clearly marked, with some exceptions.
