Jolly Bottom Road is the main northern entrance for Wheeler National Wildlife Refuge. This short, smooth two-way trail leads to other trails around this refuge, such as HGH, Blackwell Swamp, and Rockhouse Bottoms. There is a place to pull off about a mile on the left to launch a small boat onto Blackwell Swamp. This trail consists of smooth, graded gravel for the most part.

While the trail is open year-round, the gate on the south end is closed between October 14th and February 10th every year. During that time, you must enter the trail on the north end and drive in and back out the same way. Also, it is essential to stay on the trails, or we risk losing OHV access to this gem of an area.
