|Starting from County Road 27 you will be on a dirt road for 0.31 miles then cross a cattle guard. This is where you will be on BLM land on BLM2506. The road will be maintained, a lane and a half wide, that heads northeast. The road will turn to the southeast and come to an intersection. The road to the left is the continuation of BLM2506. Here you will take the right to start the Owl Mountain Road, BLM2502. The road will turn to the south and start to climb up the side of Owl Mountain through areas of the forest that have been thinned.
You will come to a spur road on the right that goes to a campsite. Past the campsite spur road you will head into an open area that has been thinned. You will drop down into a small gully through an aspen grove. The road will continue curving in and out of small gullies.
You will come back out into another open area that has been thinned. The road will continue to climb up onto Owl Mountain before passing another campsite on the left. Just past this campsite you will cross a cattle guard moving onto Forest Service lands and start Owl Creek, FR792.
