This NSA is a must see, one of my favorite places that's still close to home.

Trail Info
Enjoy 25 miles of hiking and biking trails in dense piney forests with no traffic noise to be heard.

The bumper of a car is listed as a marker on the trail map. You might overlook it if you don't know what you're looking for, so here's an image for you. It's on the left side a bit after the overlook.

Image of overlook area. Watch for the small yellow sign again on your left.

Trail Review
These are very easy trials to ride and hike, just remember they go for 25 miles.

Difficulty Level
Very Easy / Beginners (depending on the trail you take). What makes this difficult is the length.


Maps (In jpg format)
Mitch Arteberry, Park Manager for McGee Creek Natural Scenic Area created this excellent map. The McGee Creek Natural Scenic Area Map

We added the miles for each trail to his map (prints out to 8 x 10) as well as color coded the trails based on hiking or biking trail. (this is a large image file 2.61MB)

Less detailed maps are also available at the ranger station / parking area where you sign in.

Primitive Campsites

We camped in centrally located section E1 about a 2 mile bike ride or 1.5 mile hike. If biking take the longer trail as the hiking trail terrain makes the ride much longer than when using the multi-use trail despite the increased distance.

The many trails branching off from camp gave us the ability to take a different trail everyday.

Box Spring wasn't flowing or we could not find it, so water was limited.

We snacked on a Muscadine Vine near camp after 3 horse-back riders (the only people we saw the entire weekend) told us about them.

Note that a bear cub was seen at the ranger station in November of 2009. We did not see or notice any bears in the area in sept. 2010 (the weekend we visited).

Facilities at the Ranger Station
picnic sites
restrooms with and without showers
