Length: 3-miles (one way) or 6.4-miles as a loop with Snow Ranch
Trailhead Facilities: None
Short Trail Summary: This hike description is a loop.
This trail is best done as a loop with Snow Ranch C Trail, but can be done as an out and back. If done as a loop, start at the Snow Ranch parking area and ascend the ATV double track for 3-miles until the intersection with Snow Springs single track. There are nice views along the way, including a great view of Chimney Rock. If you want to make it longer, go up to the left for a little less than a mile where the trail forks and turn around. This section of trail is rarely used and is quite overgrown. For an easier route, take a right off of the Snow Ranch double track and descend 2-miles to FS Road 628. Reaching the road, take a right and travel approximately ½ a mile to the starting trailhead. The whole loop is about 800 feet of elevation change.
Directions: Drive West on Hwy 160 for 11.5-miles and turn right onto Badger Road (CR 146). Drive 1.5-miles and take the left fork onto FS 628 (Snow Ranch Road). Continue another 4.5-miles to the trail head on the left side of the road.
Alternative, for an out and back hike, follow the directions above but continue another ½ mile to the Snow Springs trailhead located on the left side of the road.
