Horse riders conversing in the forest

The Shockaloe Trail is a nationally recognized trail and is listed in the National Register of Trails.  A trip along the trail allows the rider or hiker to view more than 60 years of forest management practices in the area.  Some notable items of interest are: sound timber and prescribed fire management practices, superior trees, flatland hardwoods, wildlife openings and watering holes, and endangered species.

There are two base camps (Base Camp I and Base Camp II) and each has a pavilion and an open area for parking.  Camping is only permitted at Base Camp I.  Camping is not permitted at Base Camp II.

Have at least two adults in your party.  Park trucks and trailers in spaces provided.  Keep all facilities clean.  Carry first aid supplies with each party.  Be careful crossing roads.  No public telephones available.  Wearing orange/bright colored clothing during deer hunting season is recommended.

In case of emergency, contact Scott County Sheriff's Office (601-469-1511).
