All camps are marked OUT OF BOUNDS and should be avoided.
Magnetic North is to the top of the page.
Descriptions are on the map; loose descriptions are available at the START.
The forest has not been used much over the last couple of years due to closures from fire and weather-related events. The result is that some of the foot paths and mapped rides have become indistinct. Commonly used trails connecting camps to Jenks Lake remain in good shape.
Foxtails were prevalent during field checking; gaiters are recommended for Orange and above courses.
An adventure pass is required to park in the parking lot.
Acceptable passes include Daily Forest Adventure Pass, Annual Forest Adventure Pass, or any National Interagency Recreational Pass. You may order a Daily Forest Adventure Pass through LAOC when you register.
