We .ade a loop out of this by taking Beenie creek to Loofer and then peeling off to the upper end of Deer Hollow. Be advised this is a loop for those with grit ! The section of Loofer that we rode was a big cllimd with lots of rock. When you turn off to catch the Deer Hollow trail it's basically a game trail. It leads you to the basin at the top of Deer Hollow where you have to make a very steep rocky decent. It's a prime place for injury if you step wrong. Once in the basin you have to wonder down country on game trails for about a quarter of a mile to reach the official top end of the Deer Hollow trail. Be advised the map app is NOT accurate through this area ! Stay to the west side of the canyon. You will eventually hit an obvious trail that benches out and then falls back down into the canyon. Once it does it's an easy ride or walk back to the road. The Beenie Creek road itself is a primitive forest service road. Narrow, rocky with a lot of low canopy. Made it up there with a truck and trailer by taking it slow and really paying attention. I would only recommend this loop to those looking for a tough workout. I should mention that the views from the upper areas where very pretty and game and wildflowers where there to see.
