Fun little section leading down to the Auburn state recreation area parking. Has some built up jumps that are optional, and some pretty easy rocky sections. Its multi use so expect hikers and be on the look out to slow down.

Access Info

Head down the entrance road to Mammoth Bar OHV park. About 100 yards past the port-o-pot take the fire road to the right. On days the OHV is closed you have to hop the yellow bar gate.
