Road 400 Closure

“Forest Road 400 on Boggs Mountain Demonstration State Forest has been severely impacted by the recent storms. CAL FIRE staff have closed a portion of the road indefinitely due to a slide from above at the Forest road 220/400 intersection and below at the Forest Road 300/ 400 Intersection as highlighted on the map. There is no estimated time on re-opening. The area encircled in red on the map, which includes a portion of Crew Trail is not safe and is also closed. Recreating during inclement weather conditions is discouraged until weather subsides as areas of the forest can become more hazardous. Forest staff reminds visitors to plan ahead before arriving to the outdoors. You can learn more about CAL FIREs Demonstration State Forests at or call the office to Boggs Mountain Demonstration State Forest at 707-928-4378”

Grouse road entrance

CAL FIRE staff would like to remind forest visitors that the old trailhead off Grouse Rd/Entrance Rd is on private property and does not exist as a public access point into Boggs Mountain Demonstration State Forest. Visitors are to enter from Highway 175 to Forestry Road at the main entrance as indicated on the map. Call the Boggs Mountain Demonstration State Forest at 707-928-4378 should you have any questions.”

New trails open for business!

Friends of Boggs Mountain is excited to announce that three new/old trails are completed and ready for foot, bike or equestrian use. Bear Bones, Boggs Peak and Gails are now open. We have over ten miles of trails with another ten or more to go!
Many thanks to the Redwood Trail Alliance, Kevin Smallman and all the many volunteers for their help in making this a reality!
Stay tuned, we’re around halfway there!


Please note there will be an event in Boggs Mountain Demonstration State Forest impacting use May 6th – May 7th. For the first time since the Valley Fire events are returning to BMDSF which help with a much needed boost for our local economy. There is a permitted mountain bike race over the coming weekend. May 6th-May 7th there is an 8-hour race where riders will do a series of loops over the course of 8 hours. For any road crossings there will be course marshals monitoring for traffic and when it’s safe for riders they will let you through to get to your desired location. BMDSF remains open to the public during events. For a map of the race course which shows trails impacted by the event check our Facebook page . Feel free to come out and cheer on the athletes as they give it their all. Event information and scheduling can be found here
