Quickest route to the Boundary Trail, and ultimately to the Grayback Summit. This trail is used primarily for hiking, but is bike legal. It is extremely steep, so you probably dont want to climb it. Those who attempt climbing it report a 75% ratio of hiking to biking. Trail surface is a mix of forest dirt and rock with some steep, rooty chutes. There are also a couple of wet crossings. A side trail midway up leads to the Grayback Snow Shelter, a fully stocked cabin for the weary traveler! The top portion of this trail (where it intersects the Boundary Trail) is rocky and technical.

Access Info

Take Thompson Creek Road to Forest road 1005. Take Forest road 1005 past the Lower Obrien Creek trailhead to the Upper Obrien Creek trailhead. This last portion is best suited for 4 wheel drive vehicles.
