History:
Description:
Kenny Ridge road follows Cabin Creek through a deep canyon heading west toward Elk Mountain and Searight Mountain. After approximately 3 miles you will come to a fork in the creek. FR827.1 goes to the left. Continue to the right and head northwest following the North Fork of Cabin Creek. In just over a mile you will come to the intersection with FR112.1A that heads south and ends up looping back to FR827.1.

In just over a mile the road will leave the creek and begin to climb the ridge to the north. There will be a sharp switchback onto a ledge road that loop back to the west after a mile. You will continue to climb along a ridge of Searight Mountain before turning northwest. At 10,240 feet, just below Searight Mountain the road will do another sharp switchback and head south at a mile and a quarter from the switchback there will be another intersection with FR112.3N that will head to the right and back climbing up to Searight Mountain. Stay to the left and within a half mile you will come to Cabin Creek Divide.
