Backwoods trails for ATVs and Dirt bikes

Hiked late August. This is a trail clearly for ATVs and motorcycles. It's not fun to share a trail with motorized vehicles. It crosses several gravel roads as well. Not much to see, unless you like to see patches of logged terrain. Very dusty.

If you are looking for a quiet trail then this is not for you! This is a popular off roading site with lots of gun fire mixed in. If you have a dog that is scared of fireworks then I strongly suggest you pick another trail. The site is sometimes closed to OHV due to fire conditions and you can check here before going.

I took the 11 miles hike starting at University fall and headed clock wise. The trails are fairly well indicated but do cross over the OHV trails at many points, in some cases a 6 way intersection. The were a series of bridges and hugged the creeks for portions of the hike that really made the hike special. Some of the fire buffer zones were logged which added some nice blooming groves to the hike. There was moderate elevations on the hike and had a nice over view of the mountains about half way through. There were several nice rest stops along the way with crudely made benches and nice rocked areas along the creek. I enjoyed the hike and under certain conditions can be a very nice hike. Thus the 4 stars

Please be aware there is no cell service so upload your maps before going. The start of the major trail heads has well indicated maps of the entire area.

I really like this place. My 11 YO son and I rode here for the first time on Memorial Day weekend. We had a blast. There were a lot of people but there are so many miles of trails that it didnt feel crowded at all. It was rear that we came across other riders. Most of the trails are fairly easy right around the parking area with a few that are intermediate. They are pretty well marked so you shouldnt be surprised. Further out there are more difficult trails but we didnt make it that far. If you go stop by the Gails Creek store and pick up a free map.
Im looking forward to many more trips to and around Browns Camp. If you have any questions shoot me an email.
