Spearhead Trails

Tuesday, July 12, 2016

Alt Names

Sandy Ridge, Honey Branch, Meade Creek, Mountain View Trailhead, Mountain View ATV Trail System

Last Known StatusOpen

This new multiple use trail system opened to the public in June 2013. The trail system currently has around 85 miles of trails and they are in the process of adding more, including about 10 miles of single track. The trails are marked and rated and provide panoramic mountain views and direct access to lodging and dining facilities.

A permit is required to ride the trail system which can be purchased online or at nearby vendors. Camping is not permitted alongside the trails but Maggie Way Campground is located next to the trailhead and offers full hookups and spacious sites.

For more information check out Spearhead Trails on Facebook.
