Description

This trail is an old dirt road that is closed to vehicles. The start can be accessed across the road from the end of Galloping Goose - Illium Segment. Look for a short section of dirt road. Head across the bridge and take a sharp left to a trail that follows the river.

Continue until it opens to a wide, rutted section. Continue through this section, and look for a trail on the right at the edge of the next section of cottonwoods. This is difficult to find - if you find yourself on a doubletrack through cottonwoods and see some campers and trailers you have missed it.

Follow a twisting, wooded singletrack that parallels the highway until it pops you out east of the DOT buildings. The trail ends behind the state road shop adjacent to Deep Creek Road.
