      A little known riding area just west of Grants Pass. The land is a mixture of County property and US Bureau of Land Management lands. Access points are at Fish Hatchery Park, Stringer Gap Road, and the end of Elk Lane. The eastern section (Elk lane portions) consists mostly of decomposed granite trails and some gravel and dirt roads. Trails are mostly smooth with few roots. The western section (Bolt Mountain portion) is quite rocky with a rock/clay trail surface. A connector joins the two portions. The connector trail is probably the most difficult trail in this area.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country

      Access Info:
      The Elk Lane portion of this area is usually accessed by taking Dowell Road to Elk Lane and following Elk Lane until it ends in a parking area. The Bolt Mountain portion of this area is usually accessed from a parking area at the end of Wetherbee Drive, which is off of Fish Hatchery Road. This parking area charges a 5 dollar fee. Both portions can be accessed from an unsigned parking area on Stringer Gap Road.
