West Chevlon, FR 100, runs seven miles from Deer Lake, FR 169, to Wallace, FR 34, crossing Chevlon Canyon at Barts Crossing. The easy trail passes through a park-like open forest with brush and smaller trees cleared for fire prevention and forest management. The switchbacks leading down to Barts Crossing are steep, but the trail retains excellent traction. There are scattered dispersed campsites throughout the trail.

The track includes the FR 101 spur leading to the site of the historic Nagel Logging Camp. Today, the site is used for fall roundups of cattle that graze in the national forest on leases held by the nearby Dye Ranch. However, it makes a great group campsite. There’s a very old outhouse and a water spigot that is sometimes operational.
