Trail Overview

Old Goat SFR 625 and 625A is a State Forest Road in Shawnee National Forest. The road is short at only 1.1 miles long, but packs a punch, starting off dipping through a creek bottom, shortly after climbing a steep grade while circling around the first main hill. The hill features small ruts and gravel fading to dirt and slight off-camber spots. The hilltop features fresh gravel through a couple of rolling hills, leading you to a wide open plot where the SFR 626A seamlessly begins, here it gets wet and muddy. This is also where the SFR 625B spurs off. After the open area, the SFR 625A narrows as it concludes the final .2 mile of the trail over dirt.
