Goldfield Mountains

Blog entries from my exploration of the Goldfield Mountains

I’ve had a few requests from local riders for this map. It’s about time I posted something about the Goldfields. This map will at least get you started.

My favorite route starts at the TH where FS 10 starts. Indicated with a P on the map below. Just past the gate is the Blue Ridge Trailhead. If you like climbing start here. The doubletrack leads you to an umarked junction where unmaintained singletrack begins. Climb up to the lookouts and play around soaking up the Blue Ridge views. Take the singletrack to the 1356 and ride the Jeep road to the unmarked singletrack up north. From there you can do what you will. There’s plenty of smooth and plenty of tech to keep the adventurous grinning.

If you want my GPS tracks, shoot me an email.

Hi…dumb question. New to valley. Does any have mileage for these trails/single track?

Tom, I have the mileage for each of the trails in a gpx file. Not readily available. They are fairly short though. The topo above shows how long one mile is, that should give you an idea.

Mike I just rode (or tried) blue ridge…spectacular views. Hike-a-bike ascent. Did small loop but I single speed. Can you suggest a route that on Northern single track that makes this area more practical?
