Last Known StatusClosed

This area mainly consists of rocky 4x4 roads with a few unmarked singletrack side trails. The trails in the southern section (BLM land) constituted most of the riding opportunity here and those trails have been permanently closed as of July 2010. The northern staging area (National Forest) remains open, but it offers just a handful of trails.
