This trailhead accesses the nonmotorized McClellan Mountain Trail, #216. The trail is in a semi-primitive roadless area allowing hikers a great place to get away and enjoy a quiet place to hike. The trail leads hikers to Fields Peak as well as McClellan Mountain and connects over to the Riley Creek Trail #216A.
The trailhead and McClellan Mountain Trail are both excellent areas for wildlife viewing. Visitors to the area may see deer, elk, big horn sheep, wild horses and a large variety of birds as well as smaller creatures such as squirrels and chipmunks.
