OHV Trail Riding

North Carolina's national forests offer four trail systems for riding off-highway vehicles, including all-terrain vehicles, 4-wheel-drive and trail bikes.

Within these areas, you must stay on signed routes marked with symbols showing the kind of vehicle you're driving. Some routes are badly eroded and are closed. Help nature restore these trails by not riding on them. For the most fun, choose trails that match operating limitations of you and your vehicle. Most areas have maps that show trail difficulty.

Please follow these enforced forest regulations for treading lightly...
