Southeast of Sacramento and northeast of Sonora, the Hull and Trout Creek area is a popular area for ATV users to operate with 20 miles of signed trails and 100 miles of roads open to OHV use. Unlike the Crandall and Deer Creek area, few single-track motorcycle trails currently exist. The riding area ranges in elevation of 4500 feet near Long Barn to 7600 feet at Bourland Mountain. The riding area is closed during the winter due to snow blocking access. Hull Creek campground is nearby with 19 units, restrooms, and drinking water. Adjacent areas offer no-service, dispersed camping opportunities.
To reach the trailhead from south of Stockton on US5, head east on SR120 to Sonora. In Sonora, head northeast on SR108 for 17 miles. Near Long Barn, turn right on Long Barn Drive and then right on North Fork Road for almost 3 miles to the trailhead.
Note: As of September 2007, ATV riding is only permitted on designated Forest Service roads. To obtain a map of designated roads, contact the Forest Service HQ at (209) 532-3671.
Overall, Hull Creek / Trout Creek OHV is the 47th most popular ATV riding trail of all 106 ATV trails in California.
