McGee Creek Lake Scenic Recreation Area

Average Rating:    (3 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 2

Little Bugaboo trail from the office is fairly uneventful. Kinda steep climb through the woods with lots of rocks. Couple of creek crossings that have a good solid bottom. Wild Turkeys and other wildlife are abundant. The trail forks at the Whiskey creek and Southrim road trails. Whiskey creek run is fairly technical single track that ends and you have to double back. The Southrim trail is an easy gravel double track through the woods back to the office. Overall trail length is around 8 miles. Trail is rideable pretty much year round and park entrance is free. You do have to sign in at the office.

Summary:
Fair double track. Some trails are hiking/biking only, and others allow horses too. Averaged 16-20 mph flying around these trails. Some rocky outcrops, some soft gravel, and some rough spots tore up by horses (legally). Can catch some air off some rocks in the trail. Really fun riding fast. I wish they would make some loops from the trails that end at several spots on the lake. Beware, we rode Hog Camp to the Trail Boundary trail, and I don't think the Trail Bounday trail exists except for a brush-hogged fenceline. There is a road on the other side of the fence that will lead you to just south of the trail head, but I don't think its a marked trail. I wish we would have known that before we rode it. Not very overgrown for a June ride. I would ride it again.

Recommended Route:
Not the Boundary Trail

Summary:
TY: FIRST FILL OUT A PAMPLET OF WHEN YOU LEFT AND WHEN YOUR GOING TO BE BACK SO IF YOU DIE OUT THERE THEY WILL KNOW HOW MANY BODIES TO LOOK FOR BECAUSE IT IS 9,OOOACRES. VERY ROCKY TOUGH TERRAIN IN SPOTS AND ALSO NICE EASY SMOOTH RIDES FOR COOL DOWNS. WARNING TAKE BUG SPRAY I HAD ABOUT 100 SEED TICKS THOUGHT THEY ATE HALF MY ANKLE OFF BUT THEY ONLY GOT 1/4 AND I SCRATCHED THE OTHER 1/4 OFF!! WON'T RIDE AGAIN UNTIL FALL OR UNTIL THE PURANAH BUGS ARE DOWN TO A MINIMUM!!!!!!
JULIE: I AGREE WITH ALL OF THE ABOVE!! BUT THE FACILITIES WERE REALLY NICE EQUIPPED WITH A SHOWER AND ALL!!! WARNING THERE IS NO STORE FOR 10 MILES SO YOU DEFINITELY WANT TO TAKE SNACKS AND PLENTY OF FLUIDS CAMEL PACK WITH ICE IS THE ONLY WAY TO GO!!! ALSO WE SAW A WILD TURKEY THAT WAS A FIRST SO GOBBLE,GOBBLE,GOBBLE HOPE THATS THE TURKEY AND NOT THE BUGS!!!!!!!
