Ride the two track route 541 south until you hit the junction of route 708. Follow 708 on the double track up Bell Mountain Canyon past the motorized closure sign. The trail turns to singletrack at this point up to the turn around point at the 8,760 foot level. The quality of the trail diminishes the higher you get and requires more route finding skill. On the way back down you can take the lariat alternate route down on the unmarked trail. Take a copy of the GPS track with you for route finding assistance.

    The trail progresses from easy double track at the starting point to advanced skills with route finding abilities near the end of the trail. The trail is in a highly scenic area. Progress up the trail as far as you feel comfortable.
