Trail Information

Highlights

Forest route 8S42, part of the Red Mountain OHV trail system in the Sierra National Forest, includes mild off-road challenges, dense green forest, numerous camping opportunities and, best of all, access to the five lake trails; Red Lake, Coyote Lake, Mirror Lake, Strawberry Lake and West Lake. 8S42 - Sand Flats is a great trail for an off-road beginner or a necessary trail for the more advanced wheeler looking to reach the more challenging lake trails at the east end.
