Trail Information


Hidden completely within the Lake Russell Wildlife Management Area - a 17,000+ acre area known for primitive camping, hiking, hunting, and fishing - can be found a fun little side trail by the name of River Ridge Road. The only road under the management of the Wildlife Management Area as opposed to the Forest Service, this seasonal side trail travels the top of the ridge above the Middle Fork Broad River (the river is not visible from the trail). If you are hiking or camping in the Lake Russell Wildlife Management Area and looking for a rarely traveled side trail to explore, give River Ridge Road a look.

Rare to catch the gates open on this trail, have seen gates closed even on the listed days open! But it's a very secluded ride. Road has been maintained no the northern half. 4WD not needed, but do need some ground clearance for southern half.

Fun little rarely traveled seasonal trail. Grass growing in middle of road was taller than the hood of my truck in many areas.
