    Syllamo Camping

    Hey all!

    Question: I am looking at visiting the Syllamo trails again soon...but here is my question:

    Where can I camp with easy bike access to the trail?

    I noticed along the dirt road that goes by each trailhead that there are little 'off-shoot' pull off roads - can you legally camp on those???

    Thanks for any pointers and advice!

    You can camp on the side spots, but there's a great campground at Blanchard Springs. From there, you ride about 3/4 of a mile up a forest road & you're on the Yellow trail, or you can keep going past the yellow to Green Mtn Road and take it to the trailhead of your choice.

    I'd go with Andrea's Blanchard Springs campground first, but there is another campground Gunner Pool that is accessible near Fifty-Six and has a gravel road to the Red/Yellow trail head. It is legal to camp in the National Forrest but definitely check for burn bans. It has been a long hot dry summer.

    Thanks for the info!

    Now, I am also wanting to do a little canoeing and kayaking...is there a river down there that is slow enough to float 'down and paddle back'? Me and my wife do not kayak nearly as much as we mountain bike, so it would have to be a slow mover.
