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.

      Nice scenic double track trail with a couple of hip jumps and a couple gaps as well. There are some rocky sections but nothing crazy. Watch out for hikers.

      Since the 2021 fire, the first half has been bulldozed. The left hip at the top still remains but it’s now officially double track for the first half.
