The main reason to ride this road is to access the York with a Fork trail. However, the road continues past York with a Fork and can be used as an alternate climb to the Rumhead trail, as it switchbacks up past old coal mine workings, with some bedrock sections and great views towards Pass Powderkeg. Although some short sections are too steep to ride up, it is more fun than the loose rocks on the west access road.
