This is a 45 mile motorcycle trail that parallels FDR 200 on the east; north and south of Signal Butte.

This trail had been used by motorcyclists for a long time but hadn't been officially on the system until 1991. Currently the district is working with a motorcycle club that is signing the trail and doing trail maintenance. This trail is under the white arrow system. This means that motor vehicles commonly travel on routes designated with white arrow signs.

Camping is permitted at undeveloped sites along the trail. Camping is recommended 300' of any trail or stream. Use no-impact camping techniques. Campfire permits are not required but please be sure your fire is dead out before you leave. Pack it in / Pack it out rule applies. Respect other trail users.

Check out the Official Route.

This is a moderately difficult hike.
