Hiking & Trails

Wilson Flat Trail has a fun ATV trail network

Wilson Flat Trail is one of those cool little trail systems that aren't real close to anyplace so they don't often get a lot of attention. There's about 11 miles of trail in the network, and it's designed for ATV riders. According to the Forest Service, there are a couple steep spots, but it's suitable for beginner and intermediate riders with some trail experience.
