Humbug OHV Area

Saturday, December 09, 2017

Alt Names

Klamath National Forest, Oak Knoll Ranger District, Humbug Creek, Kennebec Gulch

Last Known StatusOpen

This area has about 14 miles of designated motorized trails, a youth training area plus a small play area. The terrain is mostly hard packed with a few ruts but there is nothing too challenging. Vegetation is a mix of pine trees and various sage and scrub brush.

The main staging area has a vault toilet, picnic tables, loading ramps and two primitive campsites.

There is no fee charged to camp or ride but machines must have current registration stickers.
