Dawson Forest is closed to mountain bikers and equestrians the first week in August. Riding is not allowed during firearms deer hunting days and not before 10:00 a.m. during deer archery and spring turkey hunting days or anytime the main gate is closed.

Description

From the parking lot, travel east following red and blue blazes. You'll join the road on which you came in for a few hundred feet and then take the well-marked (red and blue blazes) shortcut on the left through the field.

Then you've got about one mile of easy forest road before the trail turns to a singletrack. The singletrack begins a difficult 200 ft climb after passing through a creek. After a short, flat section, you've earned a fun singletrack descent down to another creek crossing.

The easy singletrack continues in the valley for a half mile and then you have a difficult climb out. The climb out is initially singletrack but it becomes a forest road shortly after a power line cut. Follow Powerline Road for about one mile and then there will be a singletrack off to the right. This is a fun, continuous (you've earned it!) descent following a creek.

There is one more short, steep climb to surmount before the finish. After this last climb, there is about a half mile of trail that passes through an area logged in winter 16/17 and this section is pretty desolate. They've re-established the trail and it is marked with red and blue ribbons. When you reach the forest road, turn left to return to your car.
