Trail Information


Starting at the notch between the Hood River drainage, the White River drainage, and Boulder Creek Basin, Bonney Meadows Road wanders through the forest and across a fun shelf road on its way down to the paved forest roads in the Barlow Road corridor. Huge meadows full of wildflowers peak through the forest to the east of the road. A fun side trail to an aerial raptor highway is just a mile from a great Forest Service campground. Down at lower elevations, old clear cuts are thick with young trees and dispersed camping.

Did bennett pass first then drove south through Bonney meadows. No crazy views but was a good trail to test out my stock Tacoma. Did it pretty easily and gained some confidence off roading. Plenty of camp spots all throughout and stayed at one near the end of the trail. Stock Subaru Forester also followed and they had no issues while taking it slow.

Attempted this from the south and hot to about half way and came upon snow covered trail too deep and long for me to get through with 4Runner pulling an OGT trailer. Turned around to paved road leading to highway 35. About 0.5 miles from 35 came upon more snow and a flatbed truck rocking to get unstuck which he eventually did. Didn’t make any further attempts at connecting trails die to expected snow conditions at the higher elevations.

The trail is now open for the season. There is likely still snow on the top of the trail at this point but in a few months everything will dry out.
