Took the son (3yo) in an Osprey kid carrier backpack. Made it to the top of the first hill, 1/2 mile in with 484ft elevation gain. Was a thigh burner, especially with the kid on my back. At the top of the hill there was the first private property signage (west side of the mountain), and a bench swing with a majestic view of Garden Valley below. The trail markers here are east of the private property signage, so unknown where the property lines are. Decent hike, if I didn’t have a 3yo strapped to my back I would loved to hike on and see the rest. I’ll add photos of trail head, swing and property signage.

This is by no means an “easy” trail. It’s super steep and made more for side by sides or dirt bikes. We ran into private property not far into it so had to turn around. Definitely disappointing and people should not waste the drive going here.

Land has been purchased and is now private. We ran into the owner (who was chill) but who mentioned that it was now his land. I would not encourage people to hike here for that reason.

Fun flowing trail. Best starting point is on the right about a half mile up scriver cr. rd.

Fun trail for off-road motorcycling. Well-groomed, no downed trees. However, there are some eroded sections that need corrective attention prior to the next rainy season.
