The dirt bike, equestrian, and mountain bike system consists of approximately 80 miles of marked trails. The trails are available for motorcycles, all-terrain vehicles less than 45 inches wide, bicycles, and horseback riding.
The marked trail (4" x 4" tags with red arrows) is divided into two separate series of loops. Each loop series has a trailhead and parking area. Information relating to ORV and other use on the Sam Houston Ranger District is posted at bulletin boards at each trailhead. Trail maps and brochures are available at the Sam Houston District Office. There is a $5.00 per user/day fee collected for all users 16 years of age and older which is payable at Kelly's Pond and at the Forest Service Road 208 & 233 parking areas. A Multi Use Trail Annual Pass is also available for $25.00 at the Sam Houston District Office.
There are strict State and Federal laws regulating off-road vehicle use in the Sam Houston National Forest. These laws and regulations are posted on trailhead bulletin boards and are available at the Sam Houston District Office. It is each user's responsibility to become familiar and adhere to these laws and regulations.
