Mule Mountain / Mule Creek Trail

Average Rating:    (3 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 2

To find the trail, look for it on the East side of the road. It has a sign but it's easy to miss. It is about 1.5 miles north of the dam. Park on the side of the road because there is no trailhead parking.
Take the Mule Mountain fork after .5 miles. The first few miles (maybe 2) are good. The problem is that the trail isn't well maintained. You'll be pushing the bike to a large degree uphill. Once you find yourself on the edge of the mountain with great views, this is the time to think about going back down. The shrubs and poison oak are bad(did I mention poison oak!) and get worse. I did a loop with Mt. Baldy trail and the Mule Creek trail. Forget Mule Creek Trail, it was a mess, mosquitos, and overgrown.

Summary:
Our local chapter of IMBA opened this trail back up. Spent 2 full days clearing buck brush back. Still some work to be done benching it out a bit, but it's definitely passable. Some sections have you riding a knife edge with a massive dropoff on the left side. Fun, fast and flowy once you get into the tree line!

Recommended Route:
Some folks like to pedal up this thing. If you just take it to where the treeeline ends, fine. It's quite a workout. Beyond that seems darn near impossible to a guy like me. From the top, it's about 1.5 miles of SERIOUS uphill to get to the payoff. 5 or so miles of downhill.
For the purpose of the rating scale below, I've rated it from the top to the bottom.

Summary:
Near Applegate Lake. To find the trail, look for it on the East side of the road. It has a sign but it's easy to miss. It is about 1.5 miles north of the dam. Park on the side of the road because there is no trailhead parking.
