Alt Names

Fresno Reservoir, Cottonwood Creek

Last Known StatusOpen

Located on the eastern shores of the Fresno Reservoir, this small area offers about 80 acres of trails, steep hill climbs and play pits. The trails range from tight, narrow single track to smooth and fast double track.

This area is remote and vegetation is sparse, mainly consisting of various sage and scrub brush. The property is only open for day use only but there is no fee charged for parking or riding. Camping can be found near the southern part of the Fresno Reservoir.
