Timberline Road

Monday, July 11, 2016

Alt Names

Thomas-whites Creek, Humboldt-toiyabe National Forest, Thomas Creek Trailhead, Thomas Meadows

Last Known StatusOpen

This set of forest roads is for day use only and is best explored by 4x4, ATV or bicycle. There are no actual motorcycle trails, but the scenic forest roads make it a decent place for beginners. There is a popular hiking trail but all motorized use is restricted to the forest roads. Entrance and parking is free, and there are plenty of parking areas with shade, as well as a paved staging area. The roads are mostly tame, with a couple of small water crossings.
