Last Known StatusOpen

This part of the Sproul State Forest offers about 50 miles of gravel and logging roads that are open to ATVs and side by sides. Previous mining activity has left several play pit areas. Scenic vista points can be seen throughout the trail system.

This trail system closes seasonally beginning the last weekend of September until the end of the flintlock/muzzleloader hunting season (generally around mid-January) and from April 1 through the Friday before Memorial Day.

There is no charge for camping but a permit is required and reservations must be made in advance by contacting the Sproul State Forest.
