Juniper Flats OHV Area

Thursday, July 11, 2019

Other Names

Klamath National Forest, Goosenest Ranger District, Shasta Valley

Last Known StatusOpen

This open play area offers 48 acres of wide and sandy trails for dirt bikes and ATVs. The perimeter is fenced off and will take the average rider about two minutes to cover, but this is still a good spot to bring beginners due to the easy terrain and looped trails.

The staging area is surrounded by mature juniper trees and has some nice shady spots with picnic tables and BBQ grills, so bring the family, friends and charcoal and make it a day of outdoor grilling and riding. Other amenities include a vault toilet, loading ramp and trash receptacles. There is no water so bring your own.

There is no fee charged to ride or park but both trails and staging area are only open during daylight hours. Camping can be found a short distance away in nearby Mt. Shasta.
