This area features numerous ATV trails in a scenic pine, maple, birch and aspen forest. There are numerous staging areas making it fairly easy to access different parts of the trail system.

The trails are mostly hardpacked with some sandy and rocky sections. Gandy Dancer ATV Trail is close by and winds near the eastern side of the forest near the St. Croix River. Primitive camping can be found at nearby Boulder Campground.
