Boggs S.F. Road 610 Professional Reviews and Guides

"The Boggs Mountain Demonstration State Forest is a special place for mountain bikers. All of the trails, including approximately 15 miles of buff singletrack, are 100 percent legal. The once clear-cut land is now replete with ponderosa and sugar pine, Douglas fir and black oak."

"Since Boggs Mountain is so far away from major cities, you might want to camp here. No water is available, but the campground is in the middle of a ponderosa pine forest reminiscent of Yosemite Valley. All that’s missing is the river and the 3,000-foot vertical granite walls. Unless you happen to arrive on a weekend when a bike race is scheduled or during deer-hunting season, you won’t see many people, and might even have the place to yourself. But you still need to be alert for other users, and to yield the right-of-way to them when you meet them. This area doesn’t have fantastic views, but it does feature miles of slightly to moderately technical narrow singletracks meandering up and down and back and forth through dense forests. Highlights: Miles of wonderful singletrack—much of it seldom traveled—through forests of ponderosa pines, California black oaks, Douglas firs, dogwoods, maples, and wildflowers. This is a great place to get away from people. No motorized vehicles are allowed on the singletracks."

"The primary purpose of Boggs Mountain Demonstration Forest is not recreation but forestry for commercial purposes. But the folks who manage the place enthusiastically welcome outdoor activities so much that you’d think recreation was Boggs’ main objective. Among bikers, Boggs is known for its endless miles of pure, sweet, completely rideable single-track trails. Though not a huge chunk of land—it’s only 3,493 acres surrounded by private property—the network of single-tracks along with a few fire roads offer many ride configurations. Beginners as well as advanced riders will find lots of agreeable trails here. Collectively, the trails are, for the most part, mildly technical since conditions are semi- and hard-packed dirt with some exposed tree roots and loose bits of rock thrown in for good fun, of course. Aerobically, moderate endurance is required since there are a few strenuously steep but short sections. The 12.9-mile loop described here is a mixture of short ups and downs, giving you a generous taste of the kinds of single-tracks and fire roads in the forest. By all means, make up your own configurations. Most, but not all, trails and fire roads are signed."

I had a chance to experience a few of the trails at Boggs Mountain and I was thurougly pleased. From technical single track to screaming downhills this place has it all. The best part is that you can camp and ride and not feel like everyone is camping right on top of you. The Creek trail is a quick blast of single track heaven. Quick turns through the numberous trees while lumbering over exposed rocks always lends to a good time. Keey your focus or - see ya! A final stream crossing and a short climb on a fire road brings you to the heli pad. From her you can ride back up the mail road to the camp ground. If you just want a quick cruise up the trail back to the camp ground all you need to do is leave a car at the heli pad and hop a ride with your bud to the camp ground to start the ride. There are numerous trails that are a bunch of fun to ride! Enjoy---- I can''t remember the
