One of the few forests that you could go off road with a full sized vehicle. Lots of fun and challeging trails for you to try. This forest also had great hiking trails. We will be coming back again real soon.

One of the few public lands you can drive a full-size vehicle in. Maybe the only one in NC (that's public land). Several different obstacles, almost all of which have a by-pass or at least an easier route except for "Daniel". There are many different...More
