      A network of trails in the Alder Creek tree farm, just west of the McDonald Forest.

      Owned by Starker Forests. Recreational access requires a free permit that must be renewed yearly in person at the Starker Forests main office, open M-F between 7am and 4:30pm.

      The use of trails is not allowed when travel will result in leaving a track in the mud, or when there is significant standing water on the trail.

      Open trails are natural tread. The entire forest is active for logging, so conditions may change day-to-day or season-to-season.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
      AKA: Skillings
      Access Info:
      Top of Skillings Rd. No parking at the gate; closest legal parking is at the end of Oak Creek Rd in the McDonald Forest.
