Last Known StatusClosed For Season

This dense pine and oak forest has about 8 miles of rocky single track and 23 miles of non-motorized trails. The motorcycle trails are marked with a yellow triangle and although there are several parking areas to access the non-motorized trails only one parking area offers direct access to the motorized trails which is located off High Rock Road.

Trails wind near several small watering holes and a couple ponds. The area is open during daylight hours only and camping is not permitted. Mosquitoes and insects are thick during the spring and summer months and area is popular with mountain bike riders.
