Saturday, December 23, 2023

Other Names

Lump Gulch Road, Jackson Creek Road, Ohio Trail, Ohio Gulch

Last Known StatusOpen

This BLM area is open year-round and offers about ten miles of woods trails for motorcycles, ATVs and UTVs. The trails wind through a heavily wooded pine tree forest and consist of hard packed dirt with some sandy sections.

The trails are marked and form multiple loops but are limited to machines that are 50 inches or less in width. Primitive camping is permitted but there are no services, so bring your own supplies. Also note that there are some sections of private land in the area.
