The Silver Peak-Hobson Horn Trail is one of the districts’ most rugged and isolated, non-wilderness trails. This historic trail travels through some of the most spectacularly rugged landscapes in southern Oregon. Connecting the site of an old forest fire lookout to the Illinois River Trail, this old trail once provided access to the rich gold producing areas along Silver Creek. In addition, an as a non-wilderness trail, it offers an exceptional trail ride for experienced motorcyclists seeking a near wilderness experience. Since this is a very isolated and rugged trail, be sure to carry plenty of water and always be prepared for an emergency stay in the forest by carrying extra clothes and food. The trail descends gradually for the first three miles to a jagged, brush covered ridge line where it remains for the next few miles. The only water is found in the first three miles and these two springs, dotted with cobra-lilies (rare insect eating plants) make for an interesting sight! This trail is a challenge for hikers and riders alike due to the very tight switchbacks and loose rock along the ridge.

Directions: From Grant's Pass: Travel north on I-5 to exit # 61 Merlin. Continue west on Merlin-Galice road and then turn left onto the Galice Creek Access road, 34-8-36. Proceed approximately 10 miles to Forest Service Rd. #2411. The trailhead begins on Hobson Horn off Forest Service Rd. #2411.
