Flatwoods is one of the parks in the Wilderness Park system in the northwest part of the County. It’s mainly comprised of a 7-mile asphalt-paved loop with 5 miles of off road trails through the middle. Plus, there are connecting single-track trails connecting it to Trout Creek Park and the others in the Wilderness Parks group, meaning it’s possible to run through all five parks on the Main trail, creating a big 14 mile loop. Adding other trails, either at Hole in the Fence, Trout Creek or adding Panther or Squiggy, which are in Flatwoods but outside the loop, could bring that up to a 20-mile loop.
The main entrance to Flatwoods Park is at 14302 Morris Bridge road. There is also an entrance on Bruce B Downs Blvd. It is not possible to drive in the park to get from one entrance to the other. You’ll pay $2 to park at either of those entrances. It’s also easy to get into Flatwoods from Trout Creek Park.
Amenities at the Morris Bridge Road Trail Head: large parking lot, restrooms, bike wash, ranger office
