This area has many singletrack trails you can follow. It's named Elk View because at some points in the year you can see the herd of Elk. You're more likely to see the herd of Wild horses. Stay away from the Elk. The horses are more used to people leaving food for them, so they are approachable, just remember they are still wild. The horses stay near here all year long. There are also many signs designating easy/medium/hard for the ATV riders that frequent the area. The horses make many singletrack paths that are too small for ATV's but just right for Mountain Bikes.
Family Friendly: Kids like to see the horses.
Need to Know
You can park beside the road. You can camp here. There is a port-a-potty beside the cemetery. Bring lots of water because the closest store is 20 miles away.
There's a lot of freedom at Elk View to do whatever you want. The place is huge. There are definitely some big hills in the area. In other words, it would be really easy to bring a GPS and follow your own trail. Some of the hils are steap enough that I lack the skills to go down them. All of the trails you see in the satellite image are rideable. 1098 at the bottom of the picture is the only paved road in the area.
