The Elk Ridge trail, also known as Mollman Lakes trail, is 10.5 miles long and climbs about 3,100 feet. This trail has two trailheads, one off of Forest Service Rd #903 and one off of Forest Service Rd #9591 which is open from 12/1-10/14. This upper trail head cuts about 0.2 miles off of the route. The trail follows closed roads for 2.7 miles before turning into the woods. This trail leads up a closed road bed (#10291), the trail turns right at a T intersection in a large grassy area where two roads meet. After turning right the trail leaves the old road to the left less than 1/10 of a mile after the intersection. This trail is not regularly maintained past 5.4 miles, please be sure you are comfortable traveling cross country and have a map and compass if you continue past this point.
Mountain biking is not allowed in the wilderness. Biking is allowed to the wilderness boundary approximately 4 miles from the lower trailhead. This is a gentle bike ride on old forest roads.
