Need to Know

Dogs must be on leash December 1st to June 30th.
This is a mixed use trail that is very popular with mountain bikers. Be sure to share the trail.
This area lacks official maps, only has a few signs, and is covered in informal trails and private property. It's open so it's hard to get properly lost, but be careful and take Hiking Project with you.

Description

This wide gravel trail starts from a gap in the fence a short distance east along Old Highway 8 trail from the Coyote Wall TrailHead. The consistent grade of this old road makes it great for ascending for runners and mountain bikers alike. It's also wide enough that passing is easily done. This trail ties together the Little Maui Trail #4425, Little Moab Trail #4424, Coyote Wall Trail #4428, Atwood Road, and more making it key to most loops in the area. You can expect excellent views of the gorge and Mount Hood from most of it's length, almost no shade, and lots of other hikers/bikers.

Flora & Fauna

Be mindful of rattlesnakes and ticks. Horned lark are ground nesting birds common to the area. Tons of wildflowers during spring.
