Description

As the trail leaves the highway from Vineyard Trailhead, it passes through historic Camp O’Rourke, an area inhabited by Theodore Roosevelt Dam workers and their families in the early 1900’s. The trail climbs steeply over a converted jeep-track that was once used to access an electronic reflector on Vineyard Mountain. From the reflector, the trail leaves the old road. The trail crosses Vineyard Mountain and descends to Forest Road (FR) 336 and follows the road for a short distance. The trail then leaves the road and follows a ridge top for approximately 1.5 miles where it terminates at the Mills Ridge Trailhead at the end of FR 429.
