Description

After climbing Abrams Gulch, you can continue along this road. You should avoid the first short cutoff that heads to Itch and Scratch. Once you hit the first road intersection, turn left. A right turn here would continue similarly to the first cutoff.

After a short while up, you'll see another road. This is 3rd Gulch to BLM Rd. 8380 Connector if you continue to head toward the left. A right turn here allows a climb up toward Firebox Road (461).

The trail itself is mostly tree covered. It climbs fairly gradually with a few steep sections. There are a few areas with larger rocks but these are easy to navigate around. There could be a couple sections that require you to hike your bike due to all the prior climbing required to reach this trail.

Finally, the connector reaches a cattle gate just before Firebox Road (461). From here, you can turn left to go down Firebox Road (461) and back to Hardscrabble Mountain Road or turn right onto a short climb to reach the pole and the start of the Firebox singletrack. This can connect to Dead Cow or up to Mike's Night Out.
