      Owned by the state, the primary purpose of NC Game Lands is wildlife conservation and management -- hunting, fishing, and trapping are allowed in Game Lands. The trails in this unique area are maintained to encourage and facilitate foot travel but are open to mountain bikers.

      Trail users should be cautious during hunting season, which is generally from mid-September to mid-May. Deer hunting season, for example, begins in mid- September and continues through mid-December. Seasons for other types of game run through mid-May. Hunters are most active on Fridays and Saturdays and at the beginning of individual game seasons. The gamelands also offer public access to the Green River for paddling and tubing.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
      Land Status: State Forest
