The trails are open year round. You can ride after dark as long as your ORV is equipped with headlights and taillights.
$5.00 per ORV / Dirt Bike per Day. Pay at entrance gate.
The trail's easy sections have gentle grades, sweeping turns, and a fairly smooth surface with few obstacles.
The most difficult part has steeper grades, tight and steep turns, sections of rough terrain, and some rock and log obstacles.
ORV's are a real challenge! But wait! Before you strike out, think about another challenge, your responsibility to
tread lightly and protect the environment you and other forest visitors enjoy. It's tough to move over the land
without damaging it, even for a hiker. You have the added disadvantage of a few hundred to several thousand pounds
of machinery. If you can move your vehicle over miles of primitive travel ways without leaving a vehicle imprint,
you are an expert! Here are the challenges that will truly test your skill.
I PLEDGE TO TREAD LIGHTLY BY:TRAVELING only where motorized vehicles are permitted.
RESPECTING the rights of hikers, campers, hunters, and others to enjoy their activities
EDUCATING myself by obtaining travel maps and regulations from public agencies, complying with signs and barriers
and asking landowners' permission to ride across private property.
AVOIDING streams, lakeshores, meadows, muddy roads and trails, steep hillsides, wildlife openings, and animals of the forest.
DRIVING responsibly to protect the environment and preserve opportunities to enjoy my vehicle on national forests.
