The Ballard Road TH the point where trail 926 crosses Ballard Road
Traveling north on this trail will take you to Greer Road (153) and the Buckhorn Ranger Station.
Traveling south on this trail will take you to Donner Pass, where other forest service trails will take you to Lookout Mountain, Crystal Mountain, S and N Signal Mountains.

The trail that takes you north is referred to as the Donner Hill Trail

Getting There

Ballard Road starts in Buckhorn Canyon, which can be accessed via LCR 27. From County Road 27, take the Pennock Pass/Buckhorn Canyon road (LCR 44H) approximately 10 miles west to Forest Service Road 129 (Ballard Road). This intersection is clearly marked with a street sign. Drive up Ballard Road approximately 3 miles to a large clearing where a sign points 'trail'

Note: While Ballard Road is moderately maintained and is (to the TH) by no means a jeep road, good ground clearance is necessary.
