“A gravel road that descends from the OHV trail system back to the parking area.”— Matt Kirby
When running south to north, the road is a gradual and mostly steady descent, with the first part passing near the base of Black Mountain and Ferm Mountain. After winding around, you'll cross the East Fork Moses Creek and start heading south.
Next, you'll pass a Forest Service gate at the junction with the Melton Cabin Trail, and from here, you can follow Moses Creek Road down and slightly right) for 5 miles back to your parked vehicle.
