Description

This trail, also known as the Southern Oregon Intertie Trail, traverses the Fremont National Forest from north to south for 134 miles.

Numerous mountain peaks and distant panoramas are found along the edge of the route. The trail also travels for 30 miles along the edge of a 2000' high fault block on Winter Rim. Open Ponderosa Pine forests and outstanding scenery are found throughout this trail. A six mile gap in this trail will be finished in 2002.
