“A rugged backcountry singletrack trail.”— Paul Arlinghaus
Hunting is also allowed on State Forest property. Please wear bright colors during hunting season and avoid during Deer gun season.
This trail is considered back country. The good news is that it will be less crowded than the trails in the State Park, but you'll also be much further away from rescue. Please be self sufficient and ride with others. Cell phone coverage is spotty (best chance is on the ridge tops).
There are no faculties at Crooked Creek Lake. A good launch point (that has facilities) is the Nature Center in Brown County State Park. Use the 10 O'Clock MTB Trail to connect to the Crooked Creek area.
Please be prepared as this trail will take you deep into Yellowwood State Forest, where access and services will be limited.
There are several access points to the trail that allow you to start the loop in different locations, to ride specific sections of the trail. The main access points are at the Crooked Creek Lake and the Intersection of the 10 O'Clock MTB Trail and Miller Ridge.
