95% singletrack loop trail, go either way there is equal amounts of up and down in both directions. The trail is marked well at the intersections of roads and trail. There is some more hardcore out and back trails off this one.

Summary:
Decent trail to get out of the heat of lower elevation trails. Non-technical and not a destination type trail. Very dusty in summer, much more fun when its got some moisture in it.

Recommended Route:
Park at Jenkinson Lake, ride up the Emigrant Trail roadway to Blue Gouge Mine rd, Trail map is there at trail entrance, follow trail 8.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Sly Park, Rancho Murieta,

Summary:
Fun trail. Equal amounts of climbing and descending. It's only about 7.5 miles long if you follow the 8 track around. It's very well marked. I've ridden this trail 4 times all in the summer months...my advise is to ride this one in spring and early summer. In the late summer months it's just too dusty. We went with four riders this past weekend, and by the end of the ride everybody was covered in fine brown powder dust. Great downhill sections, nothing too technical.

Recommended Route:
Clockwise is the only way I've gone. We Park at Ferrari fire road on Mormon Emmigrant Trail Road.

Summary:
Almost all loose singletrack riding with no real technical sections. A lot of fun (if you follow the map, we didn't and got lost). A fun little ride.

Recommended Route:
Coming off of the fire road that leads you in for a bout a mile, take the hard left (Sign marker 8). It's a bit of a tight climb for a while, but I think it makes the trail end better. Follow the sign markers, but after you reach the parking lot and hit the nice fire road, veer left about a half mile down at the rutted split and still follow the 8 markers (don't take the 8a or 8b cutoffs unless you want to hike back up, or you live down there). Loop that around for a while in some nice singletrack and climb back up the fire road until you see the 8 marker on the left. After this it's pretty straight forward. When you reach the split in the road (Whisky ranch I think?) Hang the right and veer off to the left for a bit more climbing into a nice, twisty descent back down to the fire road you started on.

Havn't really explored this area, but given the dense forest and seclusion, I can bet there are some nice trails around,

Summary:
equal amount of ups as downs. for the few downhill portion there was it was very fun. long loop of single track. some portions riding on fire road, but even that was fun. very shaded and nice.

Recommended Route:
I road the 8 loop and did the none recommended power line route to cut back, that part was fun. the more advance downhill is off the route, but long hike back up it. recomend just staying on 8 all the way. park past the second dame on the right, off morman immagrant. good fun. 1.5 hours or so.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
right across the road and up about half a mile, on the left is a turn out. park there and there is a pathway going up the right side almost following the road. all up hill, but about a mile or two turn around, and there is an awsome downhill, very fast, advanced jumps, awsome water deterent jumps. fast and fun. highly recommend.

Summary:
Very fun singletrack! A lot of twisty, roller coastery, fast trail. Depending on the direction you ride the trail system, you can mix in some extended climbs. Trail is in some really nice forested areas. The ride is mostly buff singletrack, with a few sections of fireroad. The trails are very well marked, too.

Recommended Route:
Counter clockwise, starting at the green gate just past the 2nd dam on Emigrant Trail Road (Hwy 88). I have only ridden trail 8, but 8A and 8B (out and backs) are supposed to be fun, but steep on the climb out. After doing Fleming Meadows, hop across Hwy 88 and ride the Jenkinson Lake trail.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Jenkinson Lake Loop
