Need to Know

I'd highly recommend packing enough water for the desired distance, especially in the hotter months of the year. And I suggest dressing accordingly because there's not much shade for this one. An early morning start would help. Also be prepared to encounter wildlife as well as an encounter with cows and bulls!

Description

This trail will take you from Highway 155 to the top of the mountains. The views are awesome. There are cows too. It's basically a 4WD trail, so the climbing can get pretty tough in some places.

If you are looking to do some distance and you like being on top of mountains, then this trail will help you out. I went to Bradshaw Creek and turned around, but the trail goes much further. It also connects to other dirt roads and trails, so you can really get some miles on this one if you have enough fuel and water.
