“Access to the south end of Mendocino National Forest via M5, a mellow doubletrack.”— Lance Buck
There are 3 roads that take off from this one. The first is Twin Valley Road, which explores the western slope. The second is a short spur that drops down to the bottom and dead ends at Spanish Creek. The third also ties to the western slope.
The beauty of this ride is that it allows access to the Southern end of the Mendocino National Forest. There are trails everywhere up on top due to the action of the dirt bike crowd from Stonyford. From the top, you have access to several longer rides and loops back down.
