This is the closed portion of Forest Road 014, an old logging road that is also designated as Forest Trail 059. Starting at the gate on FR014, it's easy riding to the junction of Twelvemile Meadow Trail.

With gentle grades and a wide track, this is a great trail for beginners, kids, or anybody looking for an easy cruise through the forest. This trail is also part of the classic 'Twelvemile to Lime' ride, as well as several other fun, challenging loop rides.

This trail is open to motorcycles 5/22 to 9/7, but closed to OHVs. Horse use is common on this trail. This trail is within the Twelvemile Grazing Allotment, with grazing generally occurring in this unit in August and September of each year.

Access Info

This trail starts at the closure gate at the top of FR 014, 8.8 miles from Highway 93.
