Trail Information

Highlights

Yellow Jacket Upper was once an extreme trail that has now become easy. With a few tight areas and just one rocky area, this trail can be easily traveled in most stock 4x4's. Along the route, you will pass through several meadows that bring some beauty into this burned out area.

Easy trail. Not much signs of anyone besides a few motorcycle being on this trail. The trail is clear all the way to the sign that indicates the start of the motorcycle only part of the trail. The brush is growing in to the trail a bit so there will be pinstriping. To get to this trail we started at the Frazier Mountain Trailhead - 20W03 by the Chuchupate Ranger Station. There is a large parking lot here handy if you are unloading vehicles from a trailer. We took the "118 West Frazier Mine Road" trail to the Lockwood Trail - 20W06 - 127. And then turned off on Yellow Jacket. We did see 2 other trucks on the Lock wood trail, they were doing the miller jeep trail and were planing on doing the salt creek, cherry creek and Pletio creek trails the next day (9N19). After the trails we wend back to Lake of the Woods and stopped at Mountain View Mini Mart to eat. They have a great little deli with burgers, burrito and sandwiches. This is next to Mikes pizza, also a place we have stopped at in the past. Nothing was very crowded on this Friday but it may pick up on the weekend.

We wanted to run this trail while on the Miller Jeep Trail and Lockwood creek. But time started to run short so we skipped it. Next time I guess.
