No. of Reviews: 3

single track, hills, some old roads that are rocky it is great for beginners learning to go up incline that are rocky. This can be a 8.5 mile trail if you include Paynes creek wetlands trail and Perry Riffle trail head.

This trail is about 4 or 5 miles north of Red Bluff go east on Jellys Ferry Rd to Bend Ferry Rd. go right and you cant miss it. You can pull a map up on blm.gov and look under Tehama county

Summary:
This trial is all about timing. It is beautiful in the spring, blistering hot in the summer, and it can be a mud bog in the winter. March is a great month to ride the Yana trail. By the third week of March the wildflowers are spectacular. Take a little side trip up to Osprey Pond. It is worth it. You will probably get your feet wet crossing Inks Creek at this time of year and the trial can be pretty roughed up from the cattle and equines between Inks Creek and the Massacre Flat turn off. Nonetheless we share the trail so be courteous toward the many horseback riders you will see. I always get off my bike and walk it past any horseback riders putting me between my bike and the horses. Believe it or not there are horses that have not seen a half-man half-wheeled-beasts before, and it can be startling when one comes barreling down on them.

Recommended Route:
Yana trail starting at the Oak Slough Trailhead and riding to Paynes Creek Wetlands.

Summary:
Just rode this trail--or at least tried to. Star thistle up to our handle bars. We turned around after about a mile or so because it was too painful. Looks like an amazing trail though.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Paynes Creek Wetlands has some easy fun singletrack.

Summary:
Ridden this trail a couple of times. A few short sections that some may consider a bit technical, but otherwise a moderate difficulty trail. You can return on the road system if you want to make a loop.

About halfway is a primitive BLM campground.

From the Perry's riffle area you can continue on the road system to the dead end at Paynes Creek. Cross the creek and continue on more roads (gated, so no traffic) to the Hog Lake trailhead ob Hwy 36 and another small trail network.

Great in the Spring when the wildflowers are out. July thru Sept it is hot and dusty and brown.
