Hull Creek And Trout Creek OHV Area

Wednesday, May 29, 2024

Other Names

Stanislaus National Forest, Bourland Mountain, Long Barn, Hull/Trout Creek, Mi-Wuk Ranger District, Mi Wok Ranger District

Last Known StatusOpen

This popular trail system has about 20 miles of designated ATV trails and around 100 miles of forest service roads to explore. The trails are mostly hard packed dirt with some scattered loose chunk rock. There are a handful of single track trails but this part of the forest is best explored on an ATV or dual sport motorcycle. Nearby Crandall Peak and Deer Creek has a larger portion of designated single track/motorcycle only trails.

Camping with direct trail access can be found at Hull Creek Campground, which has 23 sites available on a first come, first serve basis. Each site comes with a picnic table, fire ring and BBQ grill. A vault toilet and a hand pump water spigot are among the amenities.

The trails and campground are open seasonally around mid April through mid December, but exact dates vary. During the winter months the region usually receives heavy snowfall, making the trails and campground inaccessible.
