For 24-hour information on
Upper Lake Ranger District Trail Conditions and Closures call the
OHV/Recreation Information Line at (707) 275-1430.
The Upper Lake Ranger District's OHV area-South offers over 135 miles of
system trails and roads traversing through beautiful scenery and
The riding area varies in elevation from 1,600 feet at Middle Creek
campground/staging area, to over 4,500 feet at Hull Mountain to the
north. The trails range in degree of difficulty from novice to advanced.
Due to the nature of the topography on the Upper Lake District Middle
Creek Campground is recommended for families with children or beginning
riders so they may enjoy the "play area", while adults or
intermediate/advanced riders access the trails up out of the East Fork
of Middle Creek.
If you seek a family riding experience with easy access to all trails
ranging in difficulty level from novice to advanced, Penny Pines or Deer
Valley Campgrounds are much more desirable.
