South Halfmoon Road (Forest Road #110.3A) begins on the Halfmoon Road 2 miles west of the Mt. Massive trailhead and ends at the Iron Mike Mine. The road is a very rough four-wheel drive road with a few difficult stream crossings. Experienced four-wheel drivers only should attempt this. The road climbs into a large open alpine basin where the mine is located.
