One of the challenges hiking in the Forest Road 64 corridor is to find areas off and away from the intrusion of ATV traffic... both the active encounter and the overuse aspect. Walking along a narrow, tree lined single track is just nicer than following the dusty, eroded paths eaten out by the ATV usage.
Most of the area official paths allow ATV use... and many of the other tracks are used by ATV's, even though the use is illegal.
A pleasant exception: The Campsite Cut. This short, narrow meadow drainage drops down and away from Forest Road 64, emerging in the upper third of Fence Line Canyon. Fence Line is an open meadow canyon that winds from the ridge above FR 64 across from The Overlook Trail... down to the intersection with Hubbell Canyon Trail. The Hubbell is fenced off across this bottom intersection; ATV's are blocked off!
The real benefit to dropping off and down the Campsite Cut: access to Bull Elk Trail . That off trail route is one of the nicest getaway routes in the area, including a peak and ridge section... with a great , meandering, tree shrouded route maintained by a steady usage of elk, pounding out an Elk Hiway.
If you are lucky, you'll be able to put to use the great little campsite at the top of the Cut... and do your hikes immediately off and away from your tent.
From this site you connect to most of the hikes off of the east side of Forest Road 64... And are a short distance from all of the hikes along this high ridge road.
This is better than good.
