We camped at Horse Thief Reservoir, free camping right on the lake north of Cascade on highway, toward Warm Lake . There were miles of trails, mostly old logging roads, some trails. The area is forest, big hills, a lot of boon docking in many areas and they were full. There were some mines to see and mountain top views. We always bring our GPS, and it's a good thing we did, there are so many roads that intersect, you loose track of which one you rode or where to go. Nice riding, some lakes to see also. We also saw a Volkswagen THING!, Looks right out of an old war movie. You can remove the top and doors, it is quite square shaped. We seem to see one every six months after this sighting.
