Trail Information


In the middle of the Drummond Island trail system is the mild to moderate Sheep Ranch Trail. This trail is one of the main routes through the island and has long water crossings to get your tires and maybe your doors wet and muddy. The dense forest road has a number of rocky sections to keep things interesting for new and experienced drivers alike. Nevenen's Road, Sheep Ranch Trail, and Glen Cove Road make for a full day of mild offroading on Drummond.

A great trail with some long water crossings. There is a 100 yard long water crossing at Waypoint 9. The spur road to the south is a by-pass for the water crossing. The water crossing was about 3' deep with a solid rocky bottom. As I started in the water, I had just a bit of anxiety hoping it would not get deeper. It remained consistent all the way across. We were here during a dry time. I'm not sure how much deeper it would be during the wet season.

I expected this trail to be more of a dirt road and it surprised with a fun and rocky trail with some really cool water crossings. I highly recommend this one while you're on the island.

Visited this trail last year and it was by far my favorite on the island......the water is a lot of fun to drive through as long as you have proper clearance and a winch just in case. It is beautiful all over the island. Can't wait to go back!
