Description

This Forest Service road stretches from Hwy 92 to the end of the Reef campsite. The first mile or so is paved, after that, the rest is dirt and suitable for two-wheel drive vehicles.

There no guard rails and the switchbacks are narrow and steep. At the top, there are bathrooms and picnic benches. After climbing to 7,200 ft, you deserve a rest and nourishment. The views are spectacular, especially on the way down.

During the summer, carry a light wind breaker. It is significantly cooler at the top and the ride down will demonstrate how evaporative cooling works. For the other seasons, bring a heavier wind breaker, gloves, and ear warmers.

Trailhead

Feel the pain...don't worry, what seems like a long and precarious ride up an endless switch back dirt road will eventually reward you with the coolest part of Cooper Loop starting at the Clark Springs trailhead.
