South of Horsfall Beach Road, areas are open only to horse back riding and hiking. Horsfall Beach Road leads to both motorized and non-motorized opportunities.  At the road’s end, beach viewing and access are available.

Horsfall Beach Campground provides OHV camping, day use and parking for beach access.  Bull Run OHV Staging Area and Old Bark Road OHV Staging Area provide direct sand access, as well.  Spinreel, located at the northernmost end of the Horsfall OHV riding area, has direct sand access and designated OHV Sand Camping sites as well as an OHV campground and day use staging area.

Designated OHV routes lead riders through coastal forests and open dunes to the beach. OHV beach riding areas are located south of the Tenmile OHV Trail beach access point.
