Brimstone Recreation — named by one national publication as America’s No. 1 destination for ATV riders — offers more than 300 miles of OHV trails on almost 20,000 acres of privately managed property nestled in the wilds of the Cumberland Mountains.

Just a 15-minute drive from Williams Creek Retreat, Brimstone Recreation offers trails ranging from gravel roads through the mountains that are suitable for beginners to rough-and-tumble trails not suitable for the faint-of-heart. A permit is required.

Brimstone is neighbored by the North Cumberland Wildlife Management Area, a 145,000-acre wildlife preserve with hundreds more miles of OHV trails. A state permit is required.

O&W Road from Oneida to its terminus at North White Oak Creek is open to ATVs and allows riders to enjoy a beautiful drive along a gravel road through the Big South Fork River gorge by way of an historic railroad bed from the early 20th Century.

In order to accommodate riding, all city streets within the Town of Huntsville are legal for ATVs, so you can park your trailer anywhere inside of town to access Brimstone Recreation or the North Cumberland WMA. (S.R. 63 is off-limits to ATVs, except on two weekends a year — currently Memorial Day weekend and the third weekend of September. U.S. Hwy. 27 is always off-limits to ATVs.)

Did you know? The northern Cumberland Plateau is viewed as America’s No. 1 destination for ATV riders, east of the Mississippi River. It isn’t just Brimstone and the North Cumberland WMA that bring riders to our neck of the woods. There’s also premier riding resorts like Windrock, just a 45-minute drive from our resort.
