"The extremely steep trail winds down Silver Canyon and makes for an exciting drive. It leaves High Sierra #43: White Mountain Road, 3 miles north of the Schulman Grove Visitor Center. The narrow trail is roughly graded as it descends into Silver Canyon. There are excellent views all the way, initially toward the Sierra Nevada and Bishop (6,000 feet below in the Owens Valley), and then into the rugged Silver Canyon. The trail surface is slightly uneven and loose, but it should not cause any problems for most vehicles. Passing places are limited along the shelf road, so you will need to be prepared to back up for oncoming vehicles. Once down in the canyon, the trail crosses Silver Creek many times. The creek flows most of the year, and under normal conditions the crossings are fairly shallow. Special Attractions: Steep twisty trail that winds down Silver Canyon; Can be used as an alternate route to or from High Sierra #43: White Mountain Road; Wildlife viewing—bighorn sheep. High-clearance 4WDs are preferred, but any high-clearance vehicle is acceptable. Expect a rough road surface; mud and sand are possible but will be easily passable. You may encounter rocks up to 6 inches in diameter, a loose road surface, and shelf roads, though these will be wide enough for passing or will have adequate pull-offs."
