School Creek ORV Area

Thursday, October 24, 2019

Other Names

Milford Lake

Last Known StatusTemporarily Closed  (due to flooding)

Located on the northwestern shores of Milford Lake, this area has miles of woods trails, hill climbs, play areas and some single track trails. Most of the trails are fairly rugged and narrow, making this a good place for experienced dirt bike riders but there are some easier trails located on the eastern side of the parking lot where a beginner could have some fun.

The main staging area has plenty of room for trailers and amenities include a loading ramp and vault toilet. There is currently no fee charged for parking or riding.

Riding is permitted during day light hours only and while camping is prohibited, School Creek Campground is just a couple miles south. There is no direct trail access from any of the nearby campgrounds so machines must be hauled to and from the ORV area.
