The Stony Lonesome OHV Park is a sprawling 1500 acre park for nature lovers and thrill seekers alike. The park is designed for “Off Highway Vehicles”, but welcomes equestrians, hikers, mountain bikers, and dog walkers too. There are about 150 miles of trails to be found here, which if you were to hike them all would take almost 60 hours. It’s fair to say you won’t see the same path twice if you don’t want to! Whether you want to take a casual stroll through the woods, or stay a little longer in one of their pet-friendly cabins or campsites, the choice is yours!
You can find the entrance, main office, and plenty of parking just off of Highway 69. The rates to enter the park are $15 for ages 13 and up, $5 for ages 6-12, and free for children under 5. It’s a good idea to call ahead, because the park closes under severe inclement weather, although it’s open all year round! Check out the website so you can sign the waiver before you hit the trails. The trails are very windy and complex, but they are well maintained and have clear signage. Even so, maps are available at the main office or on the website, and be sure to bring a compass or GPS.
On these seemingly endless trails, you and your canine companion are sure to enjoy the rolling hills, flowing streams, and lush wetlands. There are steep inclines here, so it’s a great place for the athletic pups and peeps to get a good workout! Doggo’s are welcome, as long as they stay leashed and leave only paw prints. Be sure to bring water and clean up bags for your trek.
The Stony Lonesome OHV Park is dedicated to being “family-oriented, safe, and environmentally friendly.” The winding trails found here are the pawfect place to get lost with your best pal!
