South Fork Tieton Road is a 12.7-mile drive into the wilds of the Rimrock Recreation Area. Starting at Rimrock Lake, the road is single-lane pavement for about 6 miles, then turning to dirt at a snow gate. This gate is open from May 1st through November 1st. Following the South Fork Tieton River, this road provides staggering views of the high cliffs guarding the river. There are four large dispersed campgrounds along this road, starting with Lower Bakeoven, then Grey Creek, Minnie Meadows, and ending at Conrad Meadows. The road continues at Conrad Meadows but is marked as close to vehicle traffic, so please only explore further on foot. For those looking for a challenge, close to the end of the road is FS-1070 which intersects and takes you further up into the highlands east of the South Fork Tieton River.
