This is an ORV trail. I’ve been riding my dirt bike here for years. Not a good hiking or MTB trail.

Great walk. Don’t think you would want to walk this normally. Atv, dirt bikes etc would make it nerve wracking

Most of the reviews seem to be about the APV area of Maumee State Forest. This is the area where you can ride motorcycles, snowmobiles, APV’s and mountain bikes. That’s fine if that’s what you are looking to do. If you want to go for a hike, that might not be the best place for it however. Instead, I would recommend that you find The Stewardship Trail. This is a hiking only trail located in a separate area of the forest. After many years of thinking the only trails here were used by dirt bikes and 4 wheelers, I was very happy to find this hiking trail!

Come her a lot and four wheel and just noticed i can mountain bike there. I u go recommend going around 10 am from Monday- Friday to avoid fourwheelers if your not going to do that. Has some wet spots that are deep after any little rain.

First to Review

This is state forest park multipurpose trial. Trial appears to be primarily used by ATV'ers and dirt bikers. I would avoid this trial on weekends as to avoid the motorized crowd. I rode both loops on a Monday morning and had the trial to myself. This is a parking lot on cty road 2 (with restrooms). From the parking lot you can access both loops of the trail. Trail is very sandy particularly thru the meadows and more hardpack in the forest. Plan on a thorough cleaning of your bike after this ride due to the sand. Trial is flat with lots of bump sections which was fun. Trial offers several forks which later rejoin the main trial. Pick the fork that appears to be less traveled as it will be more hardpack. Both loops combined are about 5 miles, but because of the sand offers a great workout.
