The Missouri Bar Trail is a very difficult 1.4 mile trail. This trail is one mile east of North Bloomsfield and 8 miles west of Washington on Relief Hill Road. The trail descends through a forest of Douglas-fir and hardwoods to the river. The trail is narrow and descends rapidly, making it essential that mountain bikers take care to control their speed. At the bottom the trail joins the South Yuba trail, 7.7 miles west of Poorman Creek. Turning right (downstream), it is 7.5 miles to the South Yuba Campground.
Directions: From Washington, Travel north for less than one mile, bear left, continuing on Washington Road. After a short distance, turn left on Relief Hill Road (RD #36.) The pavement end 0.4 miles west. Continue on the gravel road crossing Poorman Creek. The trailhead is 0.1 miles beyond the creek (2 miles west of the South Yuba River bridge.)
