W4G/NG-047 Oakey Mtn Loop

This summit is located along an OHV trail (ATVs and dirtbikes only) and I recommend activating in the winter when the area is closed. 5.4 mile loop hike with around 3000' of elevation change. I hiked in on the trail and it has several very steep ups and downs. On the way out, about a mile from the summit I took a gated FS road which also comes out at the trailhead. It was a bit longer, but much easier on the kness.

Trail - 2.4 miles, 1260' EG, 490' EL
Trail + road - 3 miles, 961' EG, 224' EL

In the off-season when the parking lot is gated, there is plenty of room to park several vehicles along the road (34.735808, -83.520997).
