FR 160 and 259 are snowmobile trails and often impassable once the snow hits
There is 'dispersed camping' - that is primitive roadside camping with no facilities - just south of Jake's Rocks along FR 160 & FR 259. These are free sites that are open all year long. The trails cut right by a couple of them so you can ride right from the camp site.
Nearby Chapman State Park offers camping. It's about a 20 minute drive from the park to the trailhead at the top of the ridge. Stayed there last year when riding Jake's Rocks. Nice park. This year they have drained the small lake down inside the park to perform dam repairs, so park is not as scenic as usual, and parts are an active work zone. Just FYI if you're considering this spot.
I will definitely consider all of this. I don't mind primitive camping so that would not be an issue. Also interesting to know about the snowmobile trail roads/routes.FR 160 and 259 are snowmobile trails and often impassable once the snow hits
Rode it today Steve. That alone was worth the drive. Just dont do it on a rigid fatbike like I did. Talk about bringing a knife to a gun fight lol.The new trail coming online soon at Jake's Rocks - Ursus - looks like it's the real thing. Can't wait to get back out there.
