This scenic ATV trail provides visitors with panoramic mountain and forest views plus several camping options that range from primitive tent sites to a fully furnished two room cabin rental. The trail starts near Greys River Bridge and heads north, winding through pine trees and grassy meadows and ends at Forest Service Road 10138, which can be used to return back to the campground, forming a long loop.

Primitive camping with direct trail access is located near the Greys River Bridge. Additional camping can be found at Murphy Creek Campground, which has ten primitive sites overlooking the Greys Rivers. Water and vault toliets are provided but there are no hookups.

Deer Creek Cabin is located near the campground and can sleep up to six people (an additional five people are permitted to camp outside). Amenities include a stove, heater, refrigerator and lights that operate off propane. Reservations are required which can be made online.

Please note that this trail is limited to machines less than 50 inches wide and is generally open to motorized use from July through mid September. During the winter months snowmobiles are permitted. For a detailed trail map see page 5.
