Look for this sign and gravel drive beside Highway 5
This is the second of two spots where the
Syllamo mountain biking and hiking trail crosses Hwy 5 (the other is up Hwy 5, 1.3 miles
at Point 16).
A short well maintained gravel drive puts you in the parking lot, which has a Porta-Potty.
If you hike or bike the trail on the
parking lot side of Hwy 5, you'll come out in two miles at
These trails are also an excellent place for birders.
In the other direction the trail runs along
the driveway then crosses Hwy 5. The Scrappy Mountain Loop runs in a 12-mile circle. It is
a tough trail in spots and is recommended only for those who are physically fit. For more
mountain bike trails see Point 18 and Point 24
October 1 through February 28 of any year,

time. Modern gun is open during mid November.

it's not a big scenic view. It is a good place to pull over if you need a break, or to fix
a load, etc.
