This trail is best ridden either early or late in the season. Out in the sage brush, it is one of the earliest trails to dry off in a rainstorm. In the Spring, the trail is closed until May 1 as an elk refuge. To access this trail, park in the parking lot with the semi-permanent ATV ramp and Forest Service bulletin board. The trail is across the road and through a brown spring loaded, step over gate. This trail is closed to any motorized traffic. At the top of the trail it connects with Stinking Springs trail.


Seasonal Closure: Dec. 1-April 30
