AKA: Six Rivers National Forest, Patrick Creek, Old Gasquet Toll Road, Cold Spring Mountain, Holiday Road, Gasquet Mountain, Eighteen Mile Creek, Middle Fork Smith River, Trail 2E04, Smith River Canyon, Old Gasquet T

Summary


This very challenging single track trail was once an old pack train/mining road used during the late 1800's that connected the outskirts of Crescent City to the gold mines of southern Oregon. The trail is slightly over eight miles long but has some long steep climbs and descents, loose chunk rock and a few sharp switchbacks, making it geared for the more experianced rider. There are two trailheads but the preferred acess point is the southern staging area located off Old Gasquet Toll Road. The northern trailhead is located off Patricks Creek Road but can be easy to miss. The trail can be used to access nearby High Dome Trail, and when combined with the surrounding forest service roads, Elk Camp Ridge Trail can offer provide several long loop options.
