This trail system consists of seven designated loops that cater to the ATV and UTV crowd. There are numerous staging areas to choose from and two campgrounds that offer direct trail access - Duck Creek and Yankee Meadow Campground both offers nice shady sites with picnic tables and BBQ rings. Each campground has an adjacent parking corral with direct trail access.

The trails are mostly old forest service roads with light to moderate elevation changes. The terrain is mostly hardpacked with occasional loose chunk rock.

Overall this is an ideal spot for those looking for a long but relaxing camping and easy riding experience.
