Trail Description Wooded single track, new forest but not brushy. FLIES ARE TERRIBLE, unless you collect them because every annoying biting species is there by the thousands!!! I'm not kidding! July 26, 2009 from 1:30PM to 2:30PM Otherwise, it is a very pretty trail and is a steady climb to the top of Mt. Hebo. No water.
Best Time to Visit
Times to Avoid
Campground Just a gravel parking lot, there is a campground down the hill with a small lake/pond that is nice but there isn't room for a trailer. Fee may apply, NW Forest Permit should cover day use. Campground had $5 day use and $12 overnight. Gravel parking lot is probably free.

Directions Found it thanks to horsecamps.kmz on google earth! Drive to Hebo, on Hwy 22 just at the east edge of town is the ranger station and the Mt. Hebo road is well marked with a large sign for Hebo Lake. The road is NF 14, take it for about 5.5 miles, it is paved all the way but is very narrow and twisty and steep. Only big engines need to try to go up, have good brakes for the ride down!
