Overview

Fun, dead-end trail system splits three ways.

Lesser used area is entirely land locked by private property except where forest road enters between houses. Fun, challenging terrain. Great views from top of Miller Rock. Popular hiking area. Good for unlicensed vehicles except no place to park at start. Drive in 0.1 miles to small spot. Trail is open all year, weather permitting. You can exit through private Glacier View Ranch on 252A, but you must call ahead a few days to arrange to have them unlock gate. They are friendly to 4-wheelers and do this as a courtesy.

A really fun and challenging trail, but not for the novice or faint of heart!! If you like to “air down” for a smoother ride, find a place in Raymond to pull off and do it. There is no room once you hit the trail. The climb begins almost immediately. Narrow, rocky, steep in parts with sheer drop-offs along some sections. This climb is “difficult” and only high clearance vehicles will make it. No room to pass oncoming vehicles until about half way up, so cross your fingers and hope you are the only one on that section! Once up top, the majority of the trails are “moderate”, although the road up to Miller Rock had large boulders, tree roots, and washed out sections to navigate. I would rate that trail as “difficult”, but fun for the right vehicles. Overall, the trails were in good condition with just a few areas of standing water no more than a foot deep. Not much mud or trail damage due to the recent rains. We spent a good 3 hours exploring all of the trails around Miller Rock and had lots of 4WD challenges along the way. Highly recommend!!
