Total insanity. Would be great on four wheelers. You can definitely see how thedredge boats worked their way along though. Skill level: Hard/Difficult

This is a part of the Colorado Trail but is also locally referred the Swan and part of the Middle and north fork routes

I think someone has this trail marked wrong...that's part of the Colorado Trail, which is hiking only. The End from Tiger Road is correct, but where it turns and makes a sharp left is not where you go...you go straight for North Fork Swan and it's a dead end.
