What a great place to go hiking. The dog loved being out there in the woods. Fantastic place for a horseback trail ride as well.

Not too much hiking trails unless you want to go on the horseback trails. We stopped between Beauty Lake and Dead Horse Lake and walked south of the Beauty Lake Forest Road. You could see the destruction from the tornado the other year.

I spent quite a bit of time here in the fall. Very nice trails for hiking and off road cycling. Also a great grouse hunting area with plenty of trails through a variety of cover.

The best kept trails anywhere. You can go for days without crossing the same trail it seems. Little ponds and lots of hill. I love it.

Can't beat the drive- go to 210- follow through the forest- come out on 77. Or go the Beauty lake road- 77 to Cty Rd 1.
