This was my first time up the Bixler Trail, which is the least-used of the trails to the top of Bill Williams Mountain. Because I started late in the day, and because most of the hike was on the access road, which is closed, when I got to the junction of this trail and the Bill Williams Mountain Trail, I turned around. I mainly wanted to hike a trail new to me.

It's a really pretty trail. Great views to the west and south! Looks like lots of off-trail hiking, such as climbing Bixler Mountain, would easily be available from the access road.

If the road was open and if I had a high clearance vehicle I would hike Bixler more often. Nice campsites back in there along the road, too, but since it is closed in summer and is not on their OHV road map, I have to assume they are going to keep it closed.
