Summary: Simple rolling trail with a steep downhill. The official trail crosses the sipsey river but I suggest crossing earlier on hubbard creek then continue across thompson creek to the juntion with 206 and the side trail to ship rock and eye of the needle.
Trailhead: Off of Hwy 195 between Halleyville and Double Springs is the crossroads known as Rabbittown. At Rabbittown there the ubiquitous brown sign for the turn to sipsey wilderness. Follow the road and the many signs back the trail head is located on the left hand side of the road. There is an old abandonded hiker box and large lean-to style trail head sign there also. I have noticed that there was some damage that vandals had done to the sign but many people use the parking there and I have spoken to the sheriffs department and they said it was safe. The trail begins on a well marked logging road and is shared with the start to tr202. (Lat:34.29222 Lon:-87.47179)
