Billy Hill OHV Route

Sunday, July 10, 2016

Alt Names

Truckee, Hobart Hills, Stampede Reservoir, Russel Valley, Dry Creek, Dog Valley Rd, Tahoe National Forest, Truckee Ranger District

Last Known StatusOpen

Located in the Tahoe National Forest, this is the northern section of a three-part area that is surrounded by three reservoirs; Boca Reservoir, Prosser Reservoir and Stampede Reservoir. The trails here consist mostly of mild 4x4 roads but there are also various single track loops if you keep your eyes open (see map). There is a boat ramp and there are plenty of camping opportunities in this area, and nearby Prosser Hill OHV (to the west of 89) has additional trails.
