Last Known StatusOpen

This 10 mile scenic ATV loop winds through a beautiful hardwood forest of sugar maple, black cherry and yellow poplar trees. Rated as most difficult, this trail system is marked as one way and is open for multiple use.

The trails are open year-round but motorized use is only permitted beginning the Friday before Memorial Day through the last Sunday of September.
