How to Get There
These trails are reached off of Forest Service Rd. 28-1 between the Nimblewill Road and the Frank D. Merrill Army Ranger Camp. The directions will be given from both ends.
Turner Creek Trail
The Turner Creek Trail system is shown in brown on the Mountain Biking Trail Map. Note that the trail intersections are marked with letters and numbers and correspond to similar markings on the map. To reach the starting point from Wahsega Rd. travel south on FS 28-1 for 3.7 miles to Turner Creek. The trail is on the right. The approach from Nimblewill Rd. is 2.7 miles to Turner Creek and the trail will be on the left. There is limited parking in this area.
Bull Mountain Trail
This is easily accessible and one of the most popular trails in the state and is best reached from Nimblewill Rd.. Go 0.3 miles on FS 28-1 and turn left on FS 83. Go 1 miles to parking areas on each side. Bull Mountain Trail is a 11 mile loop with beautiful scenery and long hills. Several options are available to either extend or shorten the ride. The Bull Mountain Trail is shown in blue on the Mountain Biking Trail Map. Note again that the trail intersections are marked with letters and numbers that correspond to similar markings on the map.
An alternative is to turn right on this single track trail and go .8 miles until reaching old jeep road. Turn right and go past 3rd cabin and turn right. Continue to intersection of FS 83, turn right and return to starting point.
Otherwise continue on Bull Mountain trail until it reaches the Lance Creek Trail on the right. Take either the Lance Creek Trail for 2.7 miles to gate or take Bare Hare Trail extension 3.4 miles to the gate where the Lance Creek Trail rejoins the Bare Hare Trail. This is the beginning of FS 77A. After the first 100 yards or so the Lance Creek Trail becomes a beautiful ride down along Lance Creek on an old jeep trail. After the two trails join continue on FS 77A and go 0.2 miles to another gate. Immediately after passing gate turn right and ford Lance Creek at mile 8.7. Take second left and turn right onto a single track trail just before cabin at mile 9. Another less strenuous alternative is to continue past this single track trail to the third cabin and take the right on an old jeep trail. Continue until it intersects FS 83, turn right and return to starting point. If you take the single track trail go .8 miles until it rejoins the Bull Mountain Trail, turn left and return to the starting point.
This trail can be extended to 15 miles by remaining on FS 77A instead of crossing Lance Creek. Continue on FS 77A 1.7 miles to FS 77. Turn right and go 1.3 miles to FS 28-1. Turn right on FS 28-1 and continue 1.8 miles to FS 83. Turn right and return to the starting point.
