Trail Photo

This place is very popular for Jeeps because the rugged trails consist of steep and chunky climbs, deep ruts, seasonal mud pits and a few shallow stream crossings. The 20 mile trail system is primarily geared for 4x4s and four wheelers but all vehicle types including dirt bikes are permitted.

Free primitive camping with direct trail access can be found at Art Lilley Campground. The campground is graded with loose gravel and sites are available on a first come, first serve basis. Amenities include a vault toilet, unloading ramp and garbage cans but no running water. There are several full service campgrounds nearby including Arrowhead Campground and Badin Lake Campground but they do not provide direct OHV access so unless street legal, machines need to be hauled to and from the staging areas.

There are several staging areas to choose from but the trail that starts from Cotton Place Staging Area is rated as extremely difficult and should only be attempted by experienced riders.

Visitors should note that an OHV Trail Pass is required and must be purchased prior to arrival since there is no on-site self service pay station. Passes can be purchased at nearby vendors (see map for locations) or by visiting the Uwharrie National Forest District Office.
