We started our off roading adventures with this trail. At the beginning we found it quite exciting and adventurous, slow going for our first adventure. The trail calmed down but still had some challenges the further we went. At about the 17 mile mark we were stopped by a gate and had to take the McCandless Gulch Road back to Hwy 299. We really had a blast as now we have added off road driving to our biking and hiking.

Didn't meet any vehicles until half way through when we got on the nicer part of the road, then only two ATV's. This area burned a few years ago so the scenery is different. More cabins, trailers, and houses than I expected.
