The trail runs along the historic Santiam Wagon Road to the site of the old Cache Creek Toll Station, and continues over Forest Service roads to the McKenzie Highway. Slow down and use extra caution between the Meadow Lake Junction and the Sand Mountain Loop Junction. Remember, there is no fuel available along this route.
This route is usually groomed weekly, depending on snow conditions, through a partnership with the Oregon Snowmobile Association and Mt. Jefferson Snowmobile Club.
