Last Known StatusOpen

This popular area consists of two separate ATV trails - Oakey Mountain and Moates Knob. The trails are narrow, rocky and steep with a few sharp switchbacks.

Oakey Mountain Campground is located at the northern part of the trail system and offers six pull through sites on a first come, first serve basis. Each site comes with a picnic table, fire ring and lantern holder. A vault toilet and water is also available. Large trailers are not recommended since the main entrance road is steep and narrow.

A small fee is required to ride here which can be paid on site at the self pay kiosk. Annual passes can be obtained by visiting the Chattooga River Ranger District.

The trails close for the season beginning in January and usually reopen around mid March but exact dates vary. The trails may temporarily close on short notice due to inclement weather, so check the hotline before heading out.
