Highlights

Highlight: Truck Dent
Truck Dent is a very short, but scenic trail along the top of a ridge, with just enough challenges to keep the driver on his/her "toes". On a clear day,​ you will be treated to beautiful 360-degree panoramic views. As a great connector trail combined with other roads in the area - Truck Dent can be experienced from either direction, but going uphill from west to east can make the trail a bit more challenging. The beautiful forest scenery and panoramic views are what makes this trail so fun.

This trail is short in length, but long in FUN! This day was beautiful and clear. I could see Mt Hood WAY off in the distance! Try running this trail both directions - its pretty fun going downhill.
