Itinerary description

Beautiful Forests with Picnic Areas, Playgrounds, Camping Areas, and Extensive Hiking Trails and Biking Trails scattered throughout. My route through the Forest follows some paved and semi-paved roads and marks out some of the neat picnic areas/playgrounds and trailheads I came across as I explored. This whole State Forest has been a bit more rugged than a State Park, but it's certainly just as beautiful, if not more so, due to how natural and less-developed everything feels. Morgan-Monroe State Forest is certainly a neat place!
