With more than 20,000 acres of Wilderness in Citico Creek and Joyce Kilmer-Slickrock areas, this zone provides ample opportunities for solitude and backcountry experiences. Catch both native and stocked trout in Citico Creek and its rugged tributaries, and fish for small-mouth bass and catfish in the creek’s lower reaches. Young Branch Horse Camp is the hub for Little Citico Horse Trail Complex.
