Length: 1.21 Miles
Length: over 6.5 miles
Length: +/- 3.15 miles (varies depending on creation of new burn breaks)
Length: +1.5 miles
Both of these areas have maintained firebreaks that go around the exterior of the area, as well as cutting through the area to create smaller units.
Most areas have unmaintained paths or wildlife trails that are still excellent for hiking and exploring. Fall, winter, and spring are all ideal months to hike off the beaten path, because its easy to see where you are going and many plants that grow in the understory of the forest don’t have there leaves or have gone dormant until the next growing season.
