Trail Photo

This state forest boasts 25 miles of single track motorcycle-only trails that range from moderate to very difficult with some nice forest scenery.

The area is divided into two parts, a western section and an eastern section. The trails on the western side can be accessed directly from the corner of the staging area and are mostly smooth and very fun single track with banked turns, ups and downs, very few rocks and some bridge crossings. The eastern trails are across the road (Bell Rock Road) from the staging area and these trails are rockier and more challenging.

There are many parking entrances but there is only one designated motorcycle staging area. The parking area near the ranger station offers some picnic areas, restrooms, and a wading pool but bring some spray because the mosquitoes can get pretty thick in the evening hours. During the winter months snowmobiles are permitted on the trails.

This place is worth the drive, so be sure to say thanks to the Pilgrim Sands Trail Riders for maintaining these awesome trails. And although the forest is rumored to be haunted, especially The Ledge, we were having too much fun to notice any paranormal activity! Any true motorcycle trail rider will enjoy this ride.
