Trail Overview

Bats Nest Road is a non-maintained road with several large mud holes and rutted sections. This route can be used as a connector to Stone Quarry Road. There are bypasses around the two largest mud holes. One bypass is a really tight fit through several trees. Make sure you have a winch and recovery gear if attempting the mud holes, they are deep.

Ran the trail from south to north and just after a rain so it was extra slick. There is one section that was really slick rutted mud between a 3ft washout and a tree. You will need good tires if running the trail wet.

Heading north to south is definitely easier since downhill. There was 4-5 kids and adults on 4-wheelers also on the trail so I would just make sure to keep an eye out. 5-6 good size water areas also. Great time.
