Trail 257 drops off of FS road 439, and ends at FS road 438(Beauty creek road). Halfway down the trail intersects with trail 258.(The connector). Although this trail is usually ridden downhill, there will also be users who will both hike, and ride up this trail. Sections of the trail may vary from intermittently rough to soft, or unstable. Protrusions into the trail corridor may be common, but not continuous. Vegetation may encroach the trail corridor and obstacles may occur in the trail surface. Please use caution while descending.

       8-11-18. This is a popular trail for the CDA area and it does get some shuddle traffic. Beautiful trail up or down. This time of year is moon dust season but still worth it. We ride up the payment and down the single track.
