News, Updates, & Warnings:
Nothing that I know of at this time.
From Springfield, take Hwy 60 east to Hwy 5, turn south. Follow Hwy 5 to Hwy 160, turn east. Go to Hwy 181, turn north. Drive, watching for the sign that points to an unnamed gravel road entrance. Turn left then go to the trailhead.
Miles of Roads:
All gravel road riding, so you don’t normally have any hazards like downfall to negotiate. There are a lot of steep hills to climb and vistas to look at. The occasional black bear has been spotted in the area, so you need to be aware of that possibility.
Other Trail Users:
Hikers and hunters.
