|After leaving the Sugarloaf Road, there will be a large dirt area as the Peewing Road heads east. The road will be well used as it crosses an open meadow with small rock piles in it. The road will head into a short section of trees, and then come out into another open area. There will be a camp site on the right side of the road before it curves to the right, and then back left again. The road will continue, then come to an intersection, with FR332.1A to the right. This is a short spur road that heads down over the ridge to a private home. Stay to the left to continue on FR332. The road will continue along the wide ridge as the trees fill in more. After a short distance you will pass two camp sites on the right. Past these camp sites the road will narrow a bit and cross an open area with some rock outcrops on your left. Next you will pass a short dead end spur on your left, followed by a longer spur to a camp site on your right. The road will continue along the south side of the ridge as it heads east toward Peewink Mountain.
As you close in on the mountain you will come to an intersection with a road heading down hill to the south. This is FR332.1F. The road is a narrower two track that will head down the gully to your south and end after a short distance. Staying to the left you will come to a large open area in the trees, with a road to your right heading around the south side of the mountain, this is FR332.1C. Just as you start this road it will spur to the left, FR332.1G, and end up the side of the mountain a short distance. FR332.1C will continue south ending at a large turn around loop. Back at the big dirt area, the road to the left going up into the forest, around the north side of Peewink Mountain, is the continuation of FR332. It will continue to climb through the heavier forest looping around to the east side of the mountain before ending there.
