    Apparently fires are currently in the area.
    Be aware of this, both during and afterwards.

    My family and I love this place. Favorite route is shaker to scout to Karen to hoberg loop to upper hoberg loop to Karen to scout to shaker. Bring an ornament for the Christmas trees on hoberg loop.

    Some of the best riding I have done in Northern California. Definitely should be listed as a destination trail system. A little of everything here from technical to narrow winding downhill. Plenty of climbing but long descents. Feels very isolated and trails are just perfect, not groomed but natural combinations of smooth, root covered and rocky. Alpine trails, pines, meadows and great views. Just a blast to ride here.

    WOW, great trail.
    We did the CW loop, Up Mac's, Hoberg's, Karen, Scout, Berry's, Crew, Bear Bones, High Point, Dusty, then a SWEET downhill on Gail's. (The last 1/2 mile on Gail's was pretty narly though.) About 10 miles.
    The uphills were a bit steep at times, but rideable. Gail's was just a great downhill, coming north. Steep enough to get good flow, but not too steep where you ride your brakes too much. Definitely intermediate trail.
    Highly recommended; make the drive.
    (Only downside was Cal Fire was training with the copters, so a bit noisy near the TH.)

    Great riding here. Get a map before you had out. The locals are super friendly and offer great advice on what trail you might be looking for.
    Today, we rode the Shaker trail to scout trail to hoberg loop, to Mac's trail. A 4 mile loop. Lots of steady climbs to a fast rolling and sweeping downhill. Great loop for trail bikes.
    Somebody already said it but I will too. There is no poison Oak to be found. The trails are well marked and manicured. The trail group puts a lot of time in and it shows.
    It's $1 for a map but I put an extra $10 in. They deserve it! Great place to ride. Highly recommend Bogg's.

    Entrance is at the corner of Forestry Rd and the highway.

    Lots of climbing, with a few areas of rocks or steep trail - but generally easy to intermediate trails.

    Beautiful, quiet forest and a great amount of well-marked trails - mostly single track.

    Highlights: Crew track, Johns track, Creek trail (returning to car park)

    Demonstration Forest. Many trails to choose from. Good Views of surrounding hills. Hunters/Hikers also utilize forest.

    I love this park!! So many different options from easy to pretty technical. The ground stays covered in pine needles year round which makes for great winter riding. We went up for a few hours yesterday and found that parts of the trails were covered in 6 inches or more of snow which adds a different element to the ride all together. How often can you say I hit some sweet single track in CA in the snow? I can't wait for the summer to take my daughter up for a couple of days and set up camp while letting her pace her own loop through the web of awesome trails. Some of the best single track I have ridden in *NorCal*

    Spent some time on easier trails today with my son. Boggs is much nicer than I expected. It was clear and very cold today. Trails were in great shape. My 11 year old loved the trails we went on. Mac's, Hoberg's loop, Boggs Ridge, Karen's, Scout, Berry's, Thinner's, and Gails trail. All marked really well. Great Place. I'll be back for sure.* Review edited 1/4/2009

    Boggs Mountain St Forest is the name on the sign, I say mountain so there is no confusion that there is a little climbing here along with some fun downhill routes.
    May be a little out of the way but a great riding area. A lot of planning and effort goes into the trails in this relatively small area, grab a map at the kiosk and throw a buck into the donation slot as these are printed by a local group and not the forest service. There are a handful of jeep roads that wind over the mountain that the trails intersect with so its hard to get really lost, most all of the trail intersections are now well signed. I rode for a couple hours on a Thursday and seen two other people, in the parking lot. Some of the trails look as if they haven’t seen a bike in 6 months, this places definitely needs to be ridden!

    Is always fun. We are always lost though, maps can't keep up with bootlegs.
