This road is a common connector to the Cedar Flat Trail from 16N74. It's just a basic Forest Road, but a relatively easy climb to Cedar Flat Trail. This is mostly just a connector as part of larger rides.
From the bottom 16N49 is almost always used to get to the Cedar Flat Trail. Beyond this intersection, the road turns uphill sharply and becomes loose and steep until it crosses Watson Creek near the Fiberboard Freeway.
