    The Trail of Seven Bridges is more popular with OHV users as it is a multi-use trail. You will run into cyclists, dirtbikes, and quads on this trail. It follows an OHV route through the forest crossing several streams. Views open up as you gain elevation to the viewpoint at the end where you turn around. This is quite a long hike that despite the lack of visitors may be noisy with motorized vehicles.
