Spillway Cycle Area

Thursday, July 11, 2019

Other Names

Tuttle Spillway Cycle Area, Spillway OHV Area

Last Known StatusOpen

Located on the southeastern portion of Tuttle Creek Lake, this area offers several miles of trails that range in difficulty from novice to expert. Most of the terrrain is a mix of narrow but twisty hardpacked trails but there are a couple play areas with small jumps and hillclimbs to check out.

The staging area has plenty of room for parking but shade is limited. Amenities include a loading ramp, vault toilets and a few picnic tables located under some large shade trees.

The park is only open during daylight hours but River Pond State Park and other campgrounds are just a few minutes away.
