Driving Directions

Drive Highway 26 east to Sandy.

From the last traffic light in Sandy, just past the ARCO station, go 15.8 miles and make a right onto Welches Road.

Drive for 1.2 miles down Welches Road to a junction and bear left, still on Welches Road.

Drive for 0.7 miles and make a right onto E. Bridge Street.

Go for 0.2 miles, as far as a one lane bridge, and drive another 0.2 miles around to the left to park right at a cable gate and small signs for the Bonanza Trailhead.

Fees, Regulations, etc

  • Trailhead jurisdiction is very narrow here. According to the Forest Service you can park at the trailhead, only right next to the cable gate, not anywhere else on the road. To make sure you know where to park without trespassing on private property, stop by or call the Zigzag Ranger Station (70220 E. Highway 26, 503.622.3191).
  • Sullivan recommends that you park in a pullout on the right before the one-lane bridge, but now there is a homemade No Parking sign here (and don't park on the left of the road before the bridge as this is where bridge traffic yields to oncoming vehicles).
