Trail Information

Highlights

Manchester Off-Road Trail is situated in Pike National Forest. It provides you with scenic views of Manchester Creek with plenty of photo opportunities along the way. As a stark reminder to always pay attention to forest fire danger, this trail starts off in a lush forested area and ends in the burn area of the infamous Hayman Burn which scorched over 138,000 acres in 2002. The area burned so hot that nothing grew for many years and it's just now starting to show signs of the forest coming back. This growth means that over the next several years, you can expect that nearly every time you go out, the views on this trail will change.

Covered in a bit more snow than rule ridge but nothing that caused any traction issues. Nice day for wheeling with just a little snow.

This is a nice relaxing trail with no technical challenges. Having said this, in the snow, some parts of the trails can get you a little sideways but nothing careful driving can’t fix. This is a scenic drive, even in the burned area, with camping along the way.

Fun road. Except for a few dirt bikes and people already at their camp sites only passed 2 vehicles. We made a day of it by connecting Cedar Mountain to Trail Creek Road to Manchester. Saw some fall colors and avoided the chaos up on Kenosha
