Kelly Mountain Trail ATV Trails

In the Nez Perce National Forest, the Kelly Mountain Trail (#121) is a great ATV route. The trail runs south from Coffee Can Saddle, past Kelly Mountain, and ends at CR1614 near Howard Ranch.

Directions to trailhead: Access from the south leaves US Highway 95 near the south city limits of Riggins. The route crosses the Little Salmon River and follows the Salmon River Road #1614 for 9.7 miles. At milepost 9.7 you will turn north and travel on the Grangeville-Salmon Road #221. You will encounter a single lane road climbing steeply out of the canyon for 15.2 miles where you turn onto Forest Road #394 and travel east for 1.7 miles to a right on an unnamed road. Go .7 miles to a left. Then go .2 miles to a right. The trail is on the right about .5 down the road.

Note: As of September 2007, ATV riding is only permitted on designated Forest Service roads. Each road is marked to indicate usage.
