DESCRIPTION

You might call this the northern offroad showcase of the Mendocino National Forest.

With swimming holes, water crossings, and paved access to multiple campgrounds and staging areas, this area is huge and will not disappoint. (A Chatter Box or something like a Rino GPS is recommended.)

The area offers some single track, and many mountain trails of moderate difficulty. All trails are marked and rated. Most of the steeper trails are plenty wide if you need to bail out. Shade is minimal on the trail, but better in the campground.

Nearby East Park Reservoir is closed to OHV riding, but offers lakeshore camping, boating and water skiing. Elevation ranges from about 1700 to almost 6000 feet.
