Highlight: 17N37 - Little Round Mountain Road
Little Round Mountain Road goes only 1.5 miles before narrowing to single track. However, it passes through some lovely pine forest, with peakaboo views down to Bucknell Creek (seasonal) which it runs parallel to. Keep your eyes open for Red-tailed Hawks, as they are frequently seen here in springtime and summer. The trail intersects with two single-track OHV routes. When out exploring the Mendocino National Forest, it is a fun, short side trip.
