October Mountain State Forest

Summary


October Mountain State Forest has 27 miles of ATV trails that wind through over 16,000 acres of mixed hardwood trees. There are multiple staging areas along with access to the famous Appalachian Trail (non-motorized use). The trails form several long loops but most of the terrain is very rocky, making this a bit of a challenge for an inexperienced rider. This place is sometimes called 'Rocktober' because of the rugged terrain. Nearby Pittsfield State Forest might be a better option for those looking for easier terrain with a nearby campground.
