Ball Mountain – Martins Dairy

Ball Mountain – Martins Dairy

Martin’s Dairy is a peaceful, high mountain campground on the Little Shasta River. Somewhat flatter than other districts, the Goosenest features miles of roads and trails suitable for fat tire bikes, and several new trails are in the works. Deer Mountain and Four Corners feature marked snowmobile routes that turn into fun mountain bike trails in the summer months. The particular ride described here starts in the meadows and aspens around Martin’s Dairy Campground then ascends Ball Mountain, with nice views of the Shasta Valley, Butte Valley and Mount Shasta. The route is mostly on an un-maintained dirt road that is closed to 4WD traffic, so expect lots of peace and quiet. Also expect to see deer, bear and eagles as you pass through high elevation old-growth forests.
