Trail Overview

G21 - Skinned Ash Creek gets its name from the waterway that runs parallel to it. This dead-end path cuts across a picturesque mountain side showing the power of nature. Water has cut large ruts into the trail side with depths as far as 2.5 feet deep. This tire-swallowing rut is easy to avoid in most places, however, the trail tightens up in a spot that will put SxS and full-size vehicles right on the edge of the rut. The loose gravel and clay underneath could give way under the pressures of the vehicle. The end of the trail opens up to a large pasture that would provide a great spot for lunch. The park considers this trail a green "G" trail, but staff acknowledges the trail has worsened over time.
