Default Cow Mountain

The rifle range IS open, but many other parts of the park are closed.



FYI

Default Is open...

North Cow Mountain is open, the target range is open, all just a little muddy after the rains! The lower part of the mountain is very rutted from the creeks/rain, but passable if you take your time. The road belongs to the county up to Garbage Hill (not a shooting area). I know, I called the BLM to complain about the sorry state of the road. However, it does keep some of the riff-raff off the hill. South Cow Mountain OHV Area, where there is NO legal shooting, is closed until the end of summer? The BLM/Friends are clearing dead and down trees off the trails after the fires ripped through there last year. 03/25/2019

For clarification, the BLM Range is the ONLY place in North Cow Mtn. where it is legal to shoot. The A-holes that trash the place are the reason for this restriction.

I was also recently told by a Forest Service LEO at Lake Pillsbury that if people don't start hauling out the crap they shoot-up and leave there, that they (FS) may close it down to all shooters.

Never been to Cow Mtn. I try to shoot on Thurs or Fri at Circle S. But every now and then, I am tinkering with something in the safe and would like to get a few rounds off on days that Circle S isn't open.

Can someone give me the cliff notes on shooting at Cow mountain?

And, is it possible to get a street motorcycle up the road or is it truck only?

Thanks

up to garbage hill it is packed and "gravel" then downhill on the washboard at the bottom it kind of turns to powdered dirt which when wet is sticky then 40 yards to the range depending if the boggers have been there recently there can be a couple deep ruts there is a choice to go through the bushes on the left (but its a trap) let it dry out a couple weeks cause puddles can be deep

i recommend parking on the left of the range and walking up around the "gate" cause on the right is steep stairs often missing the ties and if you slip you could impale yourself on a piece of protruding rebar

Do not take a street motorcycle up to the shooting range. You probably will not make it.
Long seasonal road (dirt and rock) up the west slope, often with rills/gullys. Once you get to the shooting range turn off, there is a large mud puddle just before the range parking lot.
