Monday, December 01, 2014
Alt Names Pike State Forest ORV Trail
Last Known Status Closed For Season
DESCRIPTION

This state forest has about 10 miles of ATV trails and a small novice play area. The trails form long loops and mostly smooth but there are some that are more challenging with steep and rough climbs. The area has some moderate elevation changes with nice scenic views.

The staging area offers plenty of room for large trailers but is open for day use only. Camping can be found at nearby Pike Lake State Park.

This trail system is open seasonally to motorized use from April 1 through November 30 each year.
