Hume Lake Dirt Biking Map
COUNTRY: US   STATE: California - Southern   (Printer Version)
REGION: Sequoia National Forest   TITLE: Hume Lake Dirt Biking
NOTES: Northeast of Bakersfield and east of Fresno, the Hume Lake Ranger District has an extensive off-road motorcycle trails riding trail network. The Hume Lake Ranger District offers approximately 20 miles of motorcycle trail, 25 miles of challenging 4-wheel drive routes that are also open for motorcycle and ATV use and an additional 100 + miles of high clearance dirt road, used by dune buggys, motorcycles, four-wheel drives and ATV s, for a total of approximately 150 miles of designated OHV routes available for the average number of 3,500 OHVs per year on the District.

The Millwood OHV area, with 25 miles of OHV routes, offers the largest variety of riding and four wheeling opportunities from relatively easy, to more challenging routes such as the Goodmill 4-wheel drive route or the Old Shay Rail Road motorcycle route. The Millwood OHV Staging Area offers parking, picnic tables, a restroom, and several dispersed campsites within the vicinity.

For the most challenging routes for the more experienced off-roaders, a quick trip from Millwood, up the Abbott Creek Road, provides an elevation gain to 7000 feet for cooler weather and access to Hoist Ridge or Park Ridge. Access to Park Ridge is also available from Cherry Gap, Hume Lake via the Christian Conference or from Bearskin Grove by riding up the very challenging Huckleberry Route.

For a day trip in the Big Meadow area, the Buck Rock Jeep Trail is an old favorite of many off-roaders. With its cooler climate at 8000 elevation and nearby trout filled Big Meadow Creek, there are abundant opportunities for camping, fishing or a visit to the Buck Rock Fire Lookout.

For families, the Sand Pit, off the Big Meadow road, provides an OHV play area next to a dispersed camping area. There is also OHV access to the Buck Rock Jeep Trail from this point by using the Cheater Trail.
