Trail Overview

This road travels east/west through Inland Empire Paper's Brickel Creek Gate and connects to multiple other trails. The road is normally in decent shape with just a few ruts and washouts along the way. Mud or snow conditions may add to the difficulty level in spring and fall. This is a popular area for both ORVs and full-size vehicles. Cell service is intermittent in this area. IEP gates close seasonally. These roads are open to ORVs and full-size (50" or wider) vehicles beginning May 15 through October 31. The gates are closed to unauthorized vehicles from November 1 to May 14. An Inland Empire Paper land recreation pass is required. You can purchase an annual pass, family annual pass or individual day pass either online or at a few nearby locations. Or you can purchase a day pass at the Brickel Creek Gate with cash from the gate attendant. Check their website for more information, as well as their land use rules.

Difficulty
