Cat Hole Trails

Friday, May 24, 2024

Other Names

Grandy Brook, Green Mountain, Sullivan County ATV Club, Cathole Trails

Last Known StatusOpen

This area offers about 55 miles of woods trails that offer a good variety of shallow and deep mud puddles, waterlogged sections, some gravel roads plus occasional tree roots and rocks to crawl over.

There are two staging areas, one off Cat Hole Road and the other behind the local Burger King. This trail system closes to winter riding and reopens around the end of May after mud season (exact opening dates may vary so call first before heading out).

The Sullivan County ATV Club is active in maintaining this trail system, so be sure to say thanks for all their hard work.
