Milsap Bar East ATV Trails

East of Chico and northeast of Oroville in the Plumas National Forest, the Milsap Bar East route is about 16 miles long and is open to ATV riding. The Milsap Bar East route (aka Route 35) begins at the Milsap Bar Campground on the Middle Fork Feather Wild and Scenic River. The route heads northeast from the campground and climbs Brown Hill Ridge. A short side trail to Camel Peak provides a beautiful vista. Route 35 intersects Route 34 (Stag Point Route) to head to Stag Point or to Little Grass Reservoir. Route 35 is considered easy to moderate.

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 West route (Route 1) 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.
