This dense pine and oak forest has about 8 miles of rocky single track and 23 miles of non-motorized trails. The motorcycle trails are marked with a yellow triangle and although there are several parking areas to access the non-motorized trails only one parking area offers direct access to the motorized trails which is located off High Rock Road.
