The McQuage Bayou trail in south Walton’s Point Washington State Forest has undergone restoration and is now open for biking, hiking, and horse-back riding. The trail, originally established as equestrian-use only, has been closed to the public due to the deterioration of two large bridges along the path. The condition of these bridges made traveling the trail unsafe. With major improvements to the bridges, the trail itself and a refurbished trailhead, work is complete. The trail is open 7 days a week from dawn to dusk. Download PDF of trail map here:McQuage Bayou Trail Map
