Elderberry Flats

Saturday, December 23, 2023

Other Names

West Fork Evans Creek, Elderberry Flats Campground

Last Known StatusOpen

This trail system offers miles of rugged terrain that ranges from rutted 4x4 roads to smooth and twisty single track.

There are several unsigned staging areas off of the main road but the most popular place to park and camp is Elderberry Campground, which borders a scenic creek and has 11 sites, each with a picnic table, BBQ ring and garbage can. The campground also has some pleasant swimming holes but riding is not permitted in the creek.

The trails are open year-round except during fire season. The campground closes seasonally during the winter months.
