Last Known StatusClosed For Season

Located in the Sproul State Forest, this area offers about 45 miles of gravel and logging roads. Previous mining activity has left several play pit areas. Scenic vista points can be seen throughout the trail system.

This trail system is closed seasonally from the last weekend of September until the end of the flintlock/muzzleloader hunting season (generally around mid-January) and closes from April 1 though the Friday before Memorial Day.

There is no charge for camping but a permit is required and reservations must be made in advance by contacting the Sproul State Forest at (570) 923-6011.
