WTA Pro Tip: Save a copy of our directions before you leave! App-based driving directions aren't always accurate and data connections may be unreliable as you drive to the trailhead.

Getting There

From I-90, take exit 78 to Golf Course Road. Continue on Golf Course Road for about 0.8 mile, and at the “T” intersections, take a left onto Westside Drive. In a little under a mile, continue slightly to the right onto Fowler Creek Road.

After approximately 0.8 mile, take a right onto Forest Road 4517, and continue for about half a mile. Take a left onto Forest Road 4517-117, and continue to the washout of the road. Park here and the trailhead is on the other side of the washout.
