McGee Creek State Park Trails
The Natural Scenic Recreation Area is an 8,900 acre preserve, open all year and offers nature lovers over 35 miles of hiking, mountain biking and equestrian trails. No motorized vehicles are allowed past the lookout parking lot; and, the upper arm of McGee Creek that reaches into the area may soon be restricted to electric motors and paddles only. This wilderness abounds with wildlife and users can choose any length excursion from a short nature trail to over 30 miles of continual trail system.

Requiring a free permit, available at the permit station located at the NSRA entrance, visitors can enjoy day usage or utilize one of two primitive canoe camps, seven hiker-biker primitive camps, or two primitive equestrian camps, located within the trail system. No utilities or amenities are available at these primitive camps.

The hiking and equestrian trails are from 1 mile to 20 miles long. You would have to stake your horses as there are no corrals.
