Boulder De Roux Tr1392 traverses Hawkins Mountain, following Big Boulder Creek and De Roux Creek drainages, and is a rocky, rooty trail with plenty of technical challenge.

Boulder De Roux Tr1392 is not long enough to be a destination ride, even when joined with Camp Creek Tr1208 in a 9mi CCW Loop, but for those seeking steep and technically challenging terrain, Boulder De Roux Tr1392 is enough to be interesting and when combined with Esmeralda Basin Tr1394, becomes something near-epic.

A portion of the trail is included in the Esmeralda Basin Tr1394 loop and can be combined with Hawkins Mountain Tr1228 and Esmeralda Basin Tr1394 to create a very challenging 19mi (8100' ascent) triple-peak CCW loop.

Returning on Boulder De Roux Tr1392 is an option to the Hawkins Mountain Tr1228 bombing run, and avoids the Hawkins Mountain summit.

Boulder De Roux Tr1392 is an advanced trail and intermediate riders should try road-accessible Jolly Mountain Tr1307 before attempting the Boulder De Roux Tr1392 ascent.

Another option for intermediate riders would be to climb FR4330 and FR301 (Fortune Creek), then descend Boulder De Roux Tr1392, in a 12.5mi (3200' FR301 ascent) CW loop.

Directions: See Map. SR903 to FR4330 then 5mi to FR138, the Camp Creek TH. The dirt road from FR4330 to Boulder De Roux Tr1392 is not maintained. View Larger Map. No Map?.
