Need to Know

This is a multi use trail; so be aware of horse, OHV, hikers, cyclists.

Description

The trail is composed of loose granite, quartz and feldspar of various sizes. Immature aspens and pines line the trail growing from the remnants of the Hayman Burn Scar.

The TH is well marked and the trail does not follow mapping on Hiking Project directly; however if following markers you'll not get lost. Within the first .25-miles the trail splits with Trail #737 veering to the right. Stay left on Trail #734. At this point, the trail winds and descends for about 1.23-miles. During this segment; deer can be seen browsing a short way from the trail and are curios, but not frightened by hikers. At about mile 1.23, the trail crosses 4WD Road 897. This is where the trail differs from the map.

Cross 4WD Road 897, then about 8-meters on the left you'll pick up the trail again. Look for the Trail #734 signage. From here, the trail drops into a beautiful gulch with grasses, aspens and rock formations. Shortly, after this downslope the trail ends at 4WD Road 220.

At this point, you can choose to walk down the 4WD Road 879 and catch another trail, or turn around the way you came. Remember the decline is an incline on the out and back.
