Don't hold me to it Dave, but about three years back a buddy of mine and I were four wheeling from the Airline Snack Bar to Nicatous . . . at least that was the plan, but somehow we got turned around and ended up following ATV signs right to Chick Hill. . . I can't recall if there were signs heading up the hill or not, but I do remember that just about everyone there was going up . . . and I almost think that were signs (but then again I have a pretty poor memory). At the time there were also several other ATVers there -- some had trailered to the area and were taking off from there.

However,things get even stranger . . . about a year or so later I ran into these very same people in the Litchfield Area as I (and them) were geocaching -- you see it was that ATV misadventure that caused me to go out and buy a GPSr so I wouldn't get lost while ATVing . . . and then of course I needed to justify the expense of buying a GPSr so I also took up geocaching as another hobby . . . I assume they did the same. Haven't run into those folks since then though. . . . if memory serves me correctly they have a camp somewhere down that way.
In any case, I took a look at my map that I have of the Sunrise Trail and the map I have doesn't show a legal ATV trail up Chick Hill . . . but I could of sworn that there were ATV signs leading us to and from there. Sorry I'm not much help.
