Trail Information

Highlights

An easy to mild trail, 3N32 offers the quickest route to the legendary John Bulls GateKeeper. Along the route, you will find lots of small rocky areas and an articulation spot that is great for a new driver. While traveling to John Bull, you will pass by some great climbers areas including Coyote Crag and the turnoff to The Squeeze. Due to the remote nature of this trail, there is some great places to dispersed camp when looking to get away from the crowds.
