Other Names

Moore Creek Area, Groveland Ranger District, Dogtown, Dog Town Rd, Coalpit Hill, Ponderosa Way, Chinese Gulch, Buckhorn Flat, Virginia Point, Bald Mountain, Ham Coward Gulch, Bandarita Ridge, Monotti Hill, Merced River, Mother Lode Field Office, Groveland Ranger District

Last Known StatusClosed

This area mainly consists of rocky 4x4 roads with a few unmarked singletrack side trails. The trails in the southern section (BLM land) constituted most of the riding opportunity here but unfortunately those trails have been permanently closed to motorized use as of July 2010. The northern staging area (National Forest) remains open, but it offers just a handful of trails.
