We started in Loa. Following Main Street south maintain a southerly course on South Main until it turns to Big Rock Road after the highway makes a 90 degree turn towards Lyman. Just keep heading south when you reach Big Hollow Rd which will take you up onto the mountain.
After several miles of hard gravel road the trail slowly turns to unmaintained forest trail. TIs a pretty good trail and you shouldn’t need 4WD unless recent rain or snow have really soaked the ground.
There are a lot of Quaking Aspen along this trail and is a fantastic fall ride with a lot of color.
The large herd of Antelope that makes the plateau home like to hang out in the trees in this area.
