Bus Line trail's name comes from the old abandoned school
bus at the top of the hill. Apparently, it was the victim of a
teenage prank, years ago. The climb seems like almost a quarter

upward grade. It's only a tease, though, as you soon find it gets
progressively steeper, and the rocks get bigger and bigger!
to say, the lower, stock vehicles dig a lot of banging to get up
this hill. In fact, a TJ busted his rear output shaft getting
stuck on a nasty rock. Two winchings, and a 200 foot strapping
later, we got him off the hill!
full size Silverado found its own problems on the way up the hill,
as it's extremely long wheel base was just no match for some of
the mounds going up. But, after a couple good yanks from a Toyota
(and a very dented rocker panel) he made his way up the hill.
name-sake bus. Of course, it's full of bullet holes, silly!
