Remote canyon trail heads south from popular Cleater Bar.

Trail is remote and lightly traveled as it winds back and forth across Turkey Creek. Much of trail traverses a narrow canyon called Dead Cow Gulch. After Howard Copper Mine, you’ll climb into foothills and end with a scenic descent to Castle Creek Road. Good camping on Castle Creek Road west of Waypoint 06. This dispersed camping area is popular with ATVs and UTVs, which can access a network of trails to the south, including Trail #35. For local color, stop in at Cleator Bar, open weekends.


Trail Ratings Defined

Rocky along creek beds, but no major obstacles. A tippy, narrow ledge at Waypoint 04 is a challenge for wider vehicles.
