This well-graded road makes a wide loop around Bill Williams Mountain, which like the town of Williams was named after the infamous and reclusive mountain man. The cinder-surfaced road is suitable for passenger vehicles in dry weather and is a popular drive from spring through fall. The road may be open past the dates listed if there is little or no snow. It is not gated shut—just allowed to close naturally when it snows. There are some very good campsites along the first part of the road under the pine trees on the edge of the meadows. Special Attractions: Views of Bill Williams Mountain; Fall colors and views of wildlife along an easy loop road; Waterfowl watching at Coleman Lake. This trail is graded dirt but suitable for a normal passenger vehicle. It usually has gentle grades, is fairly wide, and has very shallow water crossings (if any).
