History:
Description:
Parkview Mountain leaves Highway 125 just below Willow Creek Pass and begins to climb through a series of switchbacks. The road is rocky and it climbs through stands of shorter pine trees. As you gain altitude the road will do broader switchbacks. There will be an itersection at the top of a short swtichback. The right hand road will head over to FR750 on the other side of the Rabbit Ears Range. The left road will continue up beyond treeline to the remains of a mine in a cirque below Parkview Moutnain.
