The Valley offers hundreds of opportunities for those wanting a unique and calm ride through the wilderness as well as those who don’t mind getting banged up by the rocky roads. Whether you opt for a maintained forest service road or a rough back woods trail, you are sure to find something that you will never forget. Take a mid-morning trip or choose to spend a full day enjoying the rugged high mountain terrain only viewed from the toughest 4x4s.

When you venture into the mountains, make sure to take plenty of food and water, extra clothes, a first aid kit, and spare tires. Remember that many trails are multi-use and may be shared by hikers, horse back riders or bikers.
