Forest Roads and Trails

RE_foottrails_19Feb15Gravel roads and dirt foot trails throughout the Forest provide opportunities for running and hiking with the following caveats:

    1. Please be aware that the Forest’s roads are maintained primarily for vehicular traffic; some sections may not be suitable for running due to the large size of the gravel.
    2. Please be aware that the condition of dirt foot trails is variable; tripping and other hazards may be present.

Detailed maps showing all roads and foot trails on the Forest are available to the public.  For more information on how to purchase these maps, please click here.
