Access Kebler Pass wagon trail 3 1/2 miles out Kebler Pass Road, on the right. This section is flat and smooth and a good way to ride to or back from the Dyke Trail or Lily lake. It crosses the road near the turn to Irwin, and crosses again after a short stint in the trees, then climbs to the road to Lake Irwin.
To ride it back from the Dyke, look for it on the left 4/10ths mile after crossing the bridge over Anthracite Creek, just after a cattleguard and after the first couple switchbacks. It is signed but somewhat hidden in the willows. this is a great way to get back to Lake Irwin if you are camping up there.
