Other Names

Sundquist Unit, Cumberland Mountains, Campbell County, New River, Tackett Creek OHV, Royal Blue East

Last Known StatusOpen

This large trail system offers almost 900+ miles of public trails open to motorized use. Many of the trails are marked and rated and form multiple interconnecting loops with many scenic views. There is a good variety of terrain that ranges from smooth and hard packed to rugged and rutted with gradual hill climbs. Waterfalls, abandoned mines, large rock formations are among the many things to discover here.

Primitive camping is permitted throughout the forest and there are a couple designated staging areas but there are no services. Most visitors choose to park at one of the local campgrounds that border the forest. Rock Ridge Retreat at Royal Blue, Ride Royal Blue RV Campground, Stinking Creek Campground, The Ridges at Royal Blue Campground, Royal Blue RV Park and Eagle Rock Resort Campground offer guests direct trail access in addition to modern campsites with electric and water hookups, cabin rentals, trail maps and permits (call first to verify rates and availability).

The trails are open year-round but during hunting season riders and passengers are required to wear blaze orange vests. Permits can be purchased online or in person at one of the campgrounds or local vendors. Call before you haul.
