I was up in Stokes in August, here is my video...

To find the trail, put stokes state forrest in your GPS then when you drive past the main gate for the camping area of Stokes, drive less than a 1/4 mile down 206 and you will see Struble Rd on your left. Drive straight down and you will run into the trails. Its all legal unless otherwise marked. We ran into a ranger in the middle of the woods on a trail and he just gave a friendly wave as we passed.

Make sure you switch the quality to HD

Did you stick to Struble or wander south into the Gap area at all? I'm supposed to head up there with a guy who knows the trails up there pretty well. He said that a lot have gotten really washed out. They didn't look too bad in your video-were there any trails that you avoided for any reason?

I stuck to a Struble and a few trails off of it... I didn't avoid any, didn't really know where I was going, I just took random turn offs and ended up taking one trail to the end where we turned around and went out the way we came in... All the trails were great, easy enough for a stock jeep, but at the same time, you need to be in a jeep to make it through. Enjoy it!

Ever come across any old farms or ruins at Stokes? I know there are plenty in the Gap but haven't really explored much of Stokes yet. There's at least one abandoned farm in High Point that's on an accessible trail-I'd think there would be at least a few more up there if not remains of old timber/mining operations.

Jk stokes

I just came across your thread. I know it's old but if anyone is interested I'd like to meet up and take a ride up to stokes. It's about an hour from me.

Fathers Day

I went yesterday as planned. According to the ranger there is just the one loop off Struble. Its pretty tame and short. After we went to buttermilk falls; then I took one of the trails to the left. I dont know if it was legal but it was fun anyway. nice little climb to the top and cross a stream. I suspect others on the forums know better and would like some feedback and maybe meet up for another run... maybe rausch creek or pine barrens.

When you say you turned left after Buttermilk were you headed northeast (toward Stokes) or southwest (toward Millbrook)? If you were headed north I think I know where you were-did the trail in look like this:





This is a little farther after you get in and climb one of the hills (it was taken about six months before the top two photos-the first time I found the trail):



I'm not sure if it's legal either. It's DWG property, not Stokes. The rule at Stokes is that if it's not otherwise signed or obviously blocked with a gate, dirt mounds, or boulders, it's fair game. DWG is pretty aggressive with road closures and they gate almost everything that's not paved. This trail (if it's the same one) is not gated-in fact, I passed at least one sign shortly after the water hole in the second picture that said "NO FIRES, NO CAMPING, STAY ON ESTABLISHED ROADS," which would lead one to believe that was an established road. However, the trail seemed to branch off a few different ways that led mostly to fishing spots along the Flatbrook. For all I know I eventually started following a trail that someone blazed rather than an NPS road. None of the roads show up on my topo maps-even the really (50+ years) old ones.
