What to know
The Forest Trail follows an old roadway on the western side of the park running northeast to southwest. The trail’s starting point is 3/4 mile northeast of the office on Spur 23 West. The trail ends where it intersects the road between the office and baseball park. Many people like to walk from the campground to the trailhead, then walk the trail’s length to where it intersects the road, then walk downhill (southeast) to the office and back to the campground. This trip is about 21/4 miles and will take 3-4 hours; however, the trail’s length is only 11/4 miles. This trail is an ideal setting to see many animals such as deer and squirrels which feed on the acorns and hickory nuts provided by the oak and hickory trees comprising this forest.
