“Generally flat singletrack trail that links BLM Swazey Recreation Area to Whiskeytown NRA.”
— Pablo Herrera
Generally flat singletrack in an old mining water ditch that links the BLM Swazey Recreation Area/Mule Ridge Trail
- Mule Ridge Trail
at the Oak Knoll Trailhead to Whiskeytown NRA - Salt Creek Loop at Mule Town Road.
The trail is well maintained with multiple bridges over the deeper creek crossings. Trail junctions include; Mule Ridge Trail
, Cosmos Way
, Stony Gulch TH, Mule Town Road and Salt Creek Loop.
Best done as a clockwise loop starting from Oak Knoll TH then up Salt Creek Loop trail, and back to Oak Knoll on the Mule Ridge Trail
(~16 miles). Alternatively, starting at Oak Knoll TH, going counterclockwise, climb the Mule Ridge Trail
to the descent on Cosmos Way
and back to Oak Knoll TH on Princess Ditch Trail (~9 miles).
