blue mtn. has a series of ST's that lead up to an ATV TH with and elevation gain of 990' . Also you can ride up FR to same TH.

2 extensions to the ride are to go to hayes pt. or deadman's point. they add considerable distance and elevation.

FS brchure states there are 20+ miles of ST ,shared ATV and FR

Summary:
starting at TH , make your way up any ST or combintaion to ATV/cycle TH. you gain 990' over 3 miles and should be able to ride w/o dismount on fairlry well maintained ST.

pick your way down any way you like.

this is basically an intermediate ride.

you can also travel up FR for even less aerobic challenge.

2 side trips - hayes pt. and deadman's pt. should add substanitially to both dist. and elevtion gain.

attached map includes elevation gradients.

excellent signage on trail and maps at TH. maps don't show distance or elevation. suggest you download attaced map.

this is NOT considered the best trail system in Mizzu, but good intermediate . take the GF and the dog!

Summary:
ride from town, drive to trail head or other entrance points or do shuttle runs. as much climbing as you want or just go to top (Deadmans) and bomb. It offers something for all skill levels

Other recommended trails in the same area:
best public/legal riding for serious riders in this area

Summary:
Blue Mountain has the best terrain AND the fewest hikers/walkers/runners/equestrians. For the doubletrack/jeep road rider there are lots of roads to ride; for the singletrack lover there's enough to keep you rolling all day long; and for the DH and FR riders, there's Dead Man's Ridge. Ride your XC or FR bike up and then all around, or shuttle your DH bike up near the top and save yourself about 10 miles of climbing. Trails are everywhere, just don't ride on the Folf Course or on the trails designated as "horse/hiker only."

Recommended Route:
1. Jedzilla XC race course climb + descent into Hayes Creek drainage

Other recommended trails in the same area:
mmmmm... Dead Man's Ridge.
