Overview

Steep, narrow shelf road crosses high pass to town of White Pine.

If you are ready to try a difficult trail that doesn’t involve serious rock crawling, this is your opportunity. Views going up are spectacular but the driver’s eyes will be on the road. Don’t start up the trail if someone is coming down even though uphill drivers have the right of way. Going down the south side to Whitepine is more relaxing.
