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.

Tried this route in hopes of a fun loop ride, but had to turn back because Fiske Creek Trail was too overgrown about 100 yards from the trail junction in the drainage (literally could not fit me and the bike through the undergrowth...in any orientation)...not sure how extensive the impasse is. So, ended up riding about 20 miles of steep fire road with loose gravel/rock on hardback...good workout. That said, had a great view of Lake Berryessa at the top and saw the cutest (and quite possibly fattest) baby brown bear hauling ass into the brush as I was rounding a corner. Good times.

Yes, sadly the trail has become pretty overgrown especially the upper end. The last time I pushed thru was o/ 2 years ago, and it was NOT easy. Anyone up for a work day?? Oct 23, 2018
