Update

A challenging, old school trail system in Tuskegee National Forest.

Philip Darden

Overview

This is a difficult ride due to the terrain and lack of maintenance. Until the recent agreement with CAMP, the trails at Tuskegee have become overgrown and under-managed. CAMP is making efforts to revitalize these trails and bring Tuskegee back to an enjoyable riding experience.

Need to Know

Be aware of hunting season. The trails are not closed during that time but it is advised to wear bright clothing.

Description

The trek through Tuskegee National Forest can be a challenge, but once complete you'll enjoy the experience. Labelled as an "old school" trail, Tuskegee offers a back country experience just a short drive from Auburn Al. While the past few years the trail has fallen into disrepair CAMP is beginning efforts to bring the trails back to their original glory.

Start out on the Bartram Trail, which is currently a technical adventure through rocks, roots, and the periodic sand pit. Ride up to the intersection with Pleasant Hill Trail, and keep on riding. While riding through the long leaf forest, you'll find many technical features to keep even the advanced rider on their toes. The trail varies between rocky and rooty to sandy and slippery.

When you reach the end, just turn around and come back the way you came.

History & Background

Tuskegee National Forest is our nation's smallest national forest.
