Trail shared by Tom Robson

An old, steep Jeep trail.

Description

This is a difficult trail making its way from the Castle Creek Road to the Highlands Ski Area. The trail starts with a very steep ascent from the summer road consisting of loose rocks and water bars. Definitely not a fun place to fall. After the first switchback, the trail becomes more manageable but expect to have your heart racing.
