Briggs Creek Tr1132 follows the creek drainage most of the distance to the Illinois River.
Note: this area has experienced many wildfires over the past decade. Please check trail conditions with the Forest Service, to ensure the trail has received maintenance in the current year.
Contact Rogue Valley MTB Assn if interested in helping with trail maintenance or for trail information.
Briggs Creek Tr1132 ends at Soldier Creek near FR152, and connects to Red Dog Tr1143.
The trail was named for George E. Briggs, a packer who supplied early miners in the area. The Courier Mine Historic Cabin Site is located near the Swede Creek Tr1135 intersection, with numerous other mines along the way.
Ride includes several Briggs Creek crossings, so avoid this ride in the Spring or after a heavy rain. The repeated creek crossings add some technical challenge to the ride.
