Milsap Bar West ATV Trails

East of Chico and northeast of Oroville in the Plumas National Forest, the Milsap Bar West route is about 8 miles long and is open to ATV riding. The Milsap Bar West route (aka Route 1) begins just south of the Brush Creek Work Center off the Oroville Quincy Road, and it drops into the Middle Fork Feather Wild and Scenic River. There are good views of Bald Roack Dome and the Feather River Canyon. The route is considered easy to moderate, with some narrow, steep sections.

To reach the trailhead from Oroville, head east on SR162 (aka Oroville-Quincy Highway) for about 25 miles to the Bruch Creek Work Center trailhead parking area. The trail heads east from the parking area.

This route connects with the Milsap Bar East route (Route 35) at the Milsap Bar Campground.

Note: As of September 2007, ATV riding is only permitted on numbered Forest Service roads and the ATV must have a red or green California ATV sticker.
