|Junction of USFS Rd 180 and 178|
Trails Mapping in the Bluewater area. I still want to check out the trail Up to Mt Sedgewick, but there are other trails to ride in there as well.
Note: all rides subject to cancellation due to weather or fire conditions. Check weather and call before you haul just in case. This one’s close to Anna’s house so she should know the conditions that day. Parking site is suitable for overnight camping. If you want to come the day before and camp, or camp overnight after the ride you are welcome. Just remember, the forest is in stage 2 restrictions meaning no open flames. We have had rain though in the area. (Check with USFS also as they MIGHT remove the restrictions shortly.)
Note that Weather predictions are for rain all this week. Call before you haul. If there is lightning, We will be safe and not ride.
If you come in from I-40 at the Thoreau Exit (53) and travel up Highway 612 to the end of the pavement. I believe it’s about 4 miles on the gravel road to the road junction. However if you come from Grants and get on the Gravel road in Grants. it’s approximately 30 miles of gravel road. Easiest to come down I-40 to Thoreau.
Here is the ride map. The total trail mapped here is about 12 miles, but we have a couple loops to check out so if we need to come back earlier due to weather etc then we can cut it shorter.
