Trail shared by Christopher Bare

A long descent along a dry creek bed from FR 4079R to Highway 35.

Description

While a doubletrack jeep/ATV path, this is still a fun hike as it consists of several miles of mostly downhill hiking accented by multiple dry and rocky creek crossings. This road can be accessed by turning off of North Star Mesa Road. Just look for the Forest Service sign labeled FR 4079R and turn off of the road and through the green forest service gate. At this point, stick to the main path and enjoy the downhill hike to Highway 35.
