    Ochoco NF - Hammer Creek Trail (#840)

    Can't seem to find much about Hammer Creek Trail (#840) in the Maury Mountains area. Forest service makes it sound "adventurous". Anybody been out there?

    I've never heard of it, but if it's in the Maury mountains area, I bet it is severely overgrown and hard to follow. Doubt it has been maintained in years.

    The photo on this site? Guaranteed to not be Hammer Creek Trail

    Looks like a good place to set a waypoint at your rig and get lost for the day. Being the only trail in the Maury Mtns. makes it sound intriguing! Might have to check that out.
    A bike by any other name is still a bike.

    I like the way you think. Please report back if you ever do. I rode lookout/round somewhat near there last week and am already wanting more.

    Oh boy - it is not a good trail. Tried to include this in an adventure race I put on this year, and the course vetting was interesting. Hard to find, epic hike-a-bike with some few stunning rideable sections (maybe 15%). Totally overgrown. Great adventure, but has not been maintained in years. Our adventure compressed into 15 sec here:
