Kalopa State Park— Jeep Road Trail

Kalopa State Park— Jeep Road Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Jeep Road offers a straightforward and pleasant ramble through Kalopa State Park’s largely non-native forest. From the parking lot by the cabins, you can retrace your steps down the road past the day-use area to the fork and take that fork to the right through the uninviting tent-camping area (this is the beginning of the Jeep Road).

Or you can simply cut through the trees next to the information sign at the parking lot for a few yards and pick up the Jeep Road on the other side of the trees. Starting from the fork, the unpaved Jeep Road curves through the camping area and toward the cabins at first, but soon it straightens and goes generally south and gradually uphill. Shrub-sized
cayenne vervain, waving its spikes of blue flowers, crowds the
understory. Strawberry guavas elbow in on either side; some have fallen across the road."
