Overview

Very steep with loose rock in places.

Scenic, remote valley offers variety of challenges for hard-core enthusiast. Snow is usually not plowed, so trail opens later in the season. Fun but difficult trail for ATVs and UTVs. Skilled dirt bikers only. Stay off trail during wet periods. Connects to Trails #11 and #13.

Uphill direction described here. Easier going downhill. Can be muddy at the bottom during wet periods. One long, steep climb of loose rock is challenging without lockers. Other rocky climbs may require winching. Not recommended for stock SUVs going uphill, although, many manage it.
