This moderately challenging trail is easily handled by a highclearance SUV in dry weather. The trail begins along McGath Lake Trail, 2.6 miles from Hells Backbone Trail and continues as a graded gravel road until the ATV unloading point for the Boulder Swale ATV trailhead. Special Attractions: Moderately challenging 4WD trail; Access to ATV trails and backcountry campsites; Aspen viewing in the fall. High-clearance 4WDs are recommended, though most stock SUVs are acceptable. Expect a rough road surface with rocks larger than 6 inches, but there will be a reasonable driving line available. Patches of mud are possible but can be readily negotiated; sand may be deep and require lower tire pressures. There may be stream crossings up to 12 inches deep, substantial sections of single-lane shelf road, moderate grades, and sections of moderately loose road surface.
