Mark Twain National Forest (Chadwick, Sutton’s Bluff)
Spectacular trails suited primarily for intermediate and advanced riders through a unique blending of eastern forest and western desert habitats that house a variety of wildlife including the bald eagle, the roadrunner, armadillos, wild turkey, white-tailed deer and black bears. The rocky trails snake across ridgelines and into deep, forested hollows. At the Sutton Bluff OHV Area, one of the two designated motorized trail systems within the forest, beginning and novice riders will find 25 miles of friendly ATV and UTV riding trails among the approximately 45 miles of trails. The other designated system is the Chadwick Motorcycle and ATV Trail System. It’s got nearly 80 miles of multi-use trails that weave in and out of deep, forested hollows and down long ridge tops, to provide you with the option of full loop riding with no backtracking. The Chadwick OHV Trail is a 16.3 mile lightly trafficked loop trail through a great forest setting, rated as difficult.
