These loop routes are few miles to the west of Big Elk Campground on Hilltop Road (NF-31) and feature Gopher Ridge Road and Gopher Creek Road. The former is a gated and decommissioned logging road that is slowly devolving into a single track trail. The latter is an exceptionally scenic gravel road. Three loops are possible: Two smaller ones (using either Gopher Ridge Road or Gopher Creek Road) or one big loop using both roads. These routes are described below.
