Motorcycle/ATV Trail

Black OHV  

(Manchester State Forest)


After a ride of approximately 4.5 miles on the Red Trail you will come to the start of the very tight and twisting single track Black Trail. Due to its tightness, this is a motorcycle only trail, which experienced riders will find a challenge and beginners very frustrating. The trail surface is a mixture of dirt and sand, which if overused may be closed to allow for recovery. Also, during wet weather there may soft spots and standing water, which may require the trail to be closed for maintenance and repairs, so please wait for drier conditions to avoid damage,

Since pine straw is being harvested in this area, don't leave the marked trail or take short cuts.

NOTE: For information about trail closings, click here: Manchester State Forest.
