Features -none-

Sticky mud after any rain.

Overview

2/3 of this ride is on rough fireroad or doubletrack. The 'road' is blocked off and cannot be accessed for any distance with four-wheel drive. The first part of the track is open to dirt bikes. The singletrack along Fiske Creek is closed to motorized traffic.

Description

There's 1900 feet of climbing up to 8% to reach the cross-roads at the ridge. Roll past a little pond and another small summit, then follow the fire road down into the Fiske Creek drainage.
Don't miss Fiske Creek Trail, which takes off on a hard left. This trail is super fun, enjoy! Sadly, this ride ends on a nasty little steep section back to the firer oad.

History & Background

The fireroad portion of the area was originally open to off-road-vehicles; however with the failure of the Bridge across Cache Creek, the highway 16 access was permanently closed several years ago. I believe the access near HMC mine, off of Knoxville Road to be closed as well.
