Description

This long gravel/dirt road is the main access to the South Mountain Game Lands and forms the southern border of the game lands and South Mountain State Park. The road is great for hiking, has challenging climbs, nice vistas, and a very remote feeling to it. There is not a lot of traffic on this road, especially after about 4 miles in when the road become rough and turns to dirt.
