Last Known StatusOpen

This part of the Huron National Forest features around 70+ miles of designated motorized trails that eventually tie into nearby Bull Gap, which has an additional 100+ miles of trails.

Camping is permitted at the Meadows ORV Campground, which has six sites that can accomodate trailers up to 25 feet. A small day use fee is charged but the campground offers direct trail access.

Most of the trails are open to machines that are 50 inches or less in width, but there are a handful of single track trails that are open to motorcycles only.
