OHV Trail Riding

OHVs and campers at site

North Carolina’s national forests offer four trail systems for riding off-highway vehicles (OHVs), including all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), 4-wheel-drives (4WDs), and trail bikes.  These trail systems have signed routes marked with symbols showing what types of vehicles are allowed on the trails. Choose trails that are designated for the type of vehicle you’re driving and stay on signed routes.  Do not drive off designated trails or create new trails or shortcuts.  Most areas have maps that show trail difficulty so you can select a trail that matches your skill level.
