The 31 miles cross rocky outlays through a mixed pine and oak forest. The trail travels near Kirby Landing and Bear Creek recreation areas and ends on the west end of Rough Mountain. The trail is marked with yellow over blue. Daisy State Park’s portion of the trail is rated for expert riders only due to the steep inclines. The area between Kirby Landing and Bear Creek is rated easy-moderate.


The trail, which was cut through the forest and utilizes no logging roads, is very scenic, running near Lake Greeson's shoreline.

NOTE: ATV's cannot be driven on roads within C.O.E. parks or Daisy State Park;

However, a parking lot with sufficient space for trailers is provided in the park at the trail head. As you enter the state park from U.S. 70, look for the first parking lot on the left just past the park entrance sign.
