Trail Photo

This area consists of two separate trail systems that can be accessed from the Edinburg and Taskers Gap Staging Area. Free primitive camping with direct trail access can be found at Little Fort Campground but the area is small and long trailers are not recommended.

The area to the north is Peters Mill Run Trail, a 12 mile, moderately challenging rocky 4x4 trail loop with occasional creek crossings, while Taskers Gap to the south offers some challenging ATV trail loops. The two areas combined offer about 40 miles of trails to explore.

A permit is required to ride here which must be obtained prior to arrival since there is no onsite pay station. Passes can be purchased at local vendors (see map for locations), via mail or by visiting the Lee Ranger District Office.
