Stony Lonesome 501 is a two-way traffic trail that is the first trail you will encounter to the northeast after passing through the entry gate of Stony Lonesome OHV Park. It is 1 of 2 trails you can take to access the Badge of Honor trail Switchback. The trail begins at the main access road and starts relatively easily. 501 crosses a drainage trail known as Rock Garden or Timbuk 1 and continues straight across, working over basketball-sized rocks and then powers up a steep, 20-degree hill that requires 4-wheel drive. The trail concludes at the Switchback and 502 trail intersection.

Stony Lonesome OHV Park is a private offroad park near Cullman, Alabama. The park is open Friday through Sunday. Riders must check in at the office near the start of the Main Access Road and check out at the end of the day to notify staff that they are no longer in the park.

Stony Lonesome offers several onsite accommodations, including tent campsites, RV campsites with full hookups, cabin rentals, and other unit rentals. Visit their website for further details.

Cullman, a 21-minute drive northeast, has the closest hotels.
