DESCRIPTION
Last Known StatusOpen
Trail Photo

This popular recreation area offers about 100 miles of challenging trails, with scenic views and primitive camping near Kentucky Lake. There are a few single track trails, but most of the terrain consists of rocky trails with steep rutted hillclimbs and numerous mud pits. 4WD vehicles and dune buggies are common here, and a permit is required to ride or drive at this location.

A newly installed fenced in half mile trail loop called the "Turkey Trot" is open for the little ones and has small logs and rocks. Permits can be purchased at the gate entrance or at one of three visitor centers.

The trails are open year-round but may close on short notice due to heavy rainfall or inclement weather, so check the trail hotline before heading out.
