East Boulder Trail Head



At creek out of East Boulder. Behind Callahan.

Directions to Callahan from I-5 heading North: Take I-5 north of Weed. At bottom of grade after Weed, take the first exit (Exit 751) toward Edgewood/Gazelle. Follow old 99S to Gazelle (about 7 miles). At Gazelle, turn left onto Gazelle-Callahan Rd. Follow it over the mountain and it will turn into Hwy. 3 at the bottom of the other side (about 25 miles). Continue on to Callahan (about 1 1/2 miles). As soon as your reach Callahan, turn left up the hill behind the Saloon. (You should see the cute little ole church as soon as you round the first bend).

Directions to East Boulder Trail Head: Use Forest Service Road 40N17. After about 5 miles (very rough guess) watch for signs and take the road to the left which is signed for E. Boulder TH. If you come to Middle Boulder Trail Head you have gone about 200 yards too far. Best to back up to the turn-off instead of trying to turn around a rig here.

Road Conditions:

Good dirt road past Callahan.
