Trailhead provides access to Byers Peak Wilderness via Byers Peak Trail. This is an unconventional trailhead in that hikers must travel over 1.8 miles of road before arriving at the trail to the peak. Visitors are welcome to bicycle this first 1.8 miles and leave the bicycle at the provided bike rack.
