This is really primarily an off road trail for motorcycles. Not exactly scenic for a hiker. One of my favorite trails for my 350 husqvarna enduro bike. Probably a great mtn bike trail too.
Great area for all types of out door fun. Stuck mostly to the North Rim trail and have explored most of it both on foot and on a quad. Lots of different options and varying terrain.
Capital Forest is a great place for hiking, bicycling, hunting, (and sometimes) backwoods skiing. Be aware there are a lot of hunters in the months Oct-Dec so wearing bright orange colors are Strongly advised. Capital forest has a lot of back gravel roads that are accessible in certain months of the year by car which make
It easy to get to more secluded hiking spots. But I'm afraid with all the new roads there putting thru capital forest it won't stay that way for long.
It has a LOT paths but also a lot of markers so the chances of getting lost in here are slim to none. In all a great nearby hike, bike, hunt, etc.
