Trail Description: Ride on FS 41 until you reach FS 4110 on your right. Turn onto FS 4110 and stay on this for 3 miles as you rise easily through the lodgepole pine forest. Turn right onto FS 4130 and stay on this road until you reach FS 4613. Turn right at FS 4613 for a short ride to highway 46. turn right onto Highway 46 and descend on the paved surface for about 0.5 mile. Turn let onto FS 4612 and immediately bear right at the fork onto FS 200. After a short climb FS 200 turns right and descends for 2.0 miles through a beautiful, open forest of lodgepole pine. Along this descent, be alert for the sharp left turn where FS 246 and FS 200 meet. The sharp left turn will keep you on FS 200 which is where you want to be. Turn right onto FS 4615 and ride until you reach FS 4610. Turn right onto FS 4610 and follow this to Highway 46. Turn right and ascend up Highway 46 for 0.3 mile and take a left onto FS 910. Ride FS 910 down past the gate and up to the quarry. From here you can ride around the side of the quarry for a close-up view of the lava flow from Lava Butte. There are two ways to descend from the quarry; a steep section just north of the quarry or a less intimidating road on around the north side of the quarry. Either way you choose will keep you on FS 910 which lead to FS 41. A left turn on FS 41 and a 0.5 mile ride return you to the trailhead.
A moderately easy ride through some nice stands of lodgepole pine.
