Activities

Camping

Camping

Camping is allowed anywhere within the riding area that does not block travel on a road and is limited to 14 days.

Dogs

Dogs

Dogs are permitted on leash. Dogs off leash are frequently lost as a result of being frightened by the loud motor vehicles and/or illegal fireworks. I recommend putting a glow stick or LED headlight on your dog at night so that they can be easily spotted.

Motor Vehicles

Motor Vehicles

Map Detail

Most maps in the Trail Finder are from a high level to provide an overview of each area.
Maps labeled as "High Res" are intended to show the high level of detail for the area but they're often unusable because of the overwhelming amount of information.
The GPS map progressively increases detail as you zoom in to prevent information overload.
