Bethel ATV Trail

Tuesday, November 01, 2016

Alt Names

Desoto National Forest, Red Creek Wildlife Management Area, Hurricane Bay, Tuxachanie Creek, Cypress Branch, Camp Branch

Last Known StatusOpen

This area has about 37 miles of mostly tight and smooth ATV trails. The terrain is mostly flat, hardpacked and smooth and winds through tall grass and a mixed pine tree forest. There are no challenging sections but this is a good place to take the family or beginner rider.

The staging area offers some basic amenities that include a self pay station, picnic tables, and a vault toilet. Primitive camping is permitted and there are plenty of flat and shaded sites to choose from.

The trails are open year-round but may close temporarily on short notice due to wet weather conditions, so check the hotline before heading out. Riding is discouraged during hunting season which is between the months of October through January.
