This approximately two tenths mile long trail was the original trail built to access the lookout before the road was built. It starts off the road on the trail down to the outhouse, goes about 10 feet below the outhouse and winds/contours around to the left through the trees. In a short distance it crosses the ridge onto an open slope with scattered sagebrush. It ends at the switchback on the road below the lookout.

Access Info

Access is via the parking area for Sheephorn Lookout, and at the switchback off road 050.
