John's Peak OHV Area

Monday, September 19, 2016

Alt Names

Cane Creek Road, Jackson Creek, Jacksonville Reservoir, MRA, Boise Cascade, Johns Peak, Timber Mountain OHV Area

Last Known StatusOpen

This system of trails offers over 16,000 acres of motorcycle loops of varying degrees of difficulty. With lots of single track, and very little traffic, this secluded area offers some decent scenery. Recent improvements include new vault toilets added to the upper staging area and a helicopter landing pad for emergencies. Keep your eye out for hidden log cabins, abandoned mines, old lumbermills, deer, coyote, bears, and cougars. Be sure to thank the Motorcycle Riders Association for maintaining and adding new trails.

There are a few steep sections, but since most trails form a loop you don't have to go back up the same way.
