Miles and miles of state forest roads that loop around two beautiful lakes. Years ago, the thousands of acres that comprise October Mountain State Forest were the Whitney Estate, an estate famous for its game preserve filled with exotic animals. Access to various areas of the property were along a network of roads. The estate and exotic animals are long gone, but the roads through the woods remain offering mountain biker lots of opportunities for interesting rides.
