These photos were taken in the spring of 1998. Some of these areas were burned in a forest fire in the early part of this century.

This photo was taken near Lovell Summit. The Lovell Summit road is just over 2 miles from the top to the bottom of the canyon. It runs through a very nice Pine, Sage and Juniper forest. There are only a few burn areas visible from this road.

While it is a dirt road, it is also an excellent downhill mountain bike run. In fact this is the best run in Lovell Canyon that I am aware of. The road is hardpan and has a few challenging spots.
