Description

The West Wagon Road Loop Trail departs from about mid-way along the Wagonwheel Trail #168. Begin by heading northwest on a gentle climb along a bench. The two-track trail surface can be muddy after a rain, but otherwise consists of somewhat loose, rocky patches interspersed with more packed areas.

Travel though piney woods and dry, scrubby vegetation. Soon after a steeper gradient, runners arrive at a "Y" intersection where the "head" of the lollipop starts. Complete the circle in either direction, visiting primitive camp spots, an overgrown overlook and nice views of a rugged cliff-band to the north. The trail is faint here, so keep your eye out. Upon arrival back at the "Y" intersection, tramp down the "stem" of the lollipop until it deposits you back at the Wagonwheel Trail #168.

Fall colors are pretty here, but be sure to wear orange during hunting season as this area is popular with motorized hunting parties.
