On Doe Mountain
Our 8,600 acres of protected mountain wilderness are ideal for all types of adventure and feature multi-use trails for off-highway vehicles, horseback riding, mountain biking, and hiking. We are always looking to expand our trail offerings, so please check with our office for any new additions, or connect with us on Facebook and let us know what type of trail you’d like to see!
The Doe Mountain Adventure Center, located at the Harbin Hill Trailhead, serves as the base camp for all mountain activities and is where we hold safety classes, nature programs, and outdoor adventure expositions. It is also our Trail Information Center, where you can purchase user permits and obtain trail maps and books. Come see us today, then hit the trails!
Our OHV trails have a range of difficulty ratings, so whether you are an experienced rider or a novice, there is a perfect route for you to safely explore.
Trails range from easiest (green), which are wider and more level, to most difficult (black), which can be extremely steep and include uneven paths over large rocks and around significant obstacles. We also offer single track motorcycle trails for extreme off-road motorcycle enthusiasts.
If you prefer excursions on two wheels, Doe Mountain offers both designated Mountain Biking Only and a variety of multi-use trails for your enjoyment.
Our designated mountain biking trail features beautiful rhododendron arches and relatively easy inclines. For more variety, bikers can explore Doe Mountain using any of the multi-use trails. Given the natural beauty of our raw mountain wilderness, it promises to be an exhilarating experience!
With more than 60 miles of trails blazed through our stunning mountain wilderness, adventure abounds for hikers at Doe Mountain!
Hiking is welcome on all of our multi-use trails, in addition to our very challenging Hiking Only trails. Treks on foot offer the serenity of nature and breathtaking landscapes. Take in several panoramic views, or climb to the top of the historic Kettlefoot Fire Lookout Tower to see gorgeous mountain scenery in Tennessee, North Carolina, and Virginia.
