Hero: Scodie Mountains SC37
small-sr Icon

In the southern Scodie Mountains, a beautiful narrow canyon guides SC37 as it rises 1300 feet to the narrow mountain ridge of Wyleys Knob and an intersection with the Pacific Crest Trail. The ridge provides a perfect lunch spot while enjoying impressive views of the surrounding mountains and the distant Kiavah Wilderness.   

SC37  is reached via Frog Creek SC47 and SC50. A BLM trail marker at the western start of the trail indicates this trail has a "Difficult" rating. Obstacles on the west and east side of the Wyle Knob ridge confirm this rating. The entire trail requires a high clearance 4x4 to manage a three-foot sandstone ledge on the west side of the trail and a steep descent over rough, rocky, water-damaged terrain on the eastern half. Only an experienced driver should attempt this trail.

At the northern end of the trail is Bureau of Land Management prepared primitive campsite with a rock fire ring that can be used when meeting BLM Camping Guidelines. During high fire danger, campfires may be restricted, and if planning to camp here, one should review the current BLM Campfire Restrictions and have a Campfire Permit.
