DESCRIPTION

This old road is about 15 miles long and eventually leads to Silverwood Lake. The trail itself is rated easy, but there are a few side roads that may offer a little bit of challenge. The staging area off of Cajon Pass is small and narrow and RVs are advised to stage at Silverwood Lake. An Adventure Pass is required to ride this trail and it can be purchased at the nearby ranger station.
