Bridging the gap between New Castle and the tiny community of Buford, Forest Road 245 travels over 32 miles through the White Mountain National Forest. The trail has abundant free primitive camping along the countless spur trails leading into the trees. Wildlife is abundant in the area. Elk, moose, deer, bear, and mountain lions are common sites on the trail. The trail is a maintained county road with long climbs, washboards, and ruts from water drainage. The entire route can be completed in high clearance 2WD in dry conditions. ATVs are not allowed but be aware of other traffic on the road including large trucks towing campers. This is a busy and fast road.
