Dead-end 4×4 Trails
The best of these routes are barely passable and—if you're lucky—lead to an abandoned farmstead. Look on your topo for clusters of small black boxes at trail's end indicating outbuildings, then hike or drive in for a closer look. If you find old agricultural fields overgrown with briers, milkweed, dogwood, goldenrod, Queen Anne's lace, and hardwood saplings, for example, mark the spot on your GPS. Zero in on hedgerows, stone walls, and creek beds as prime buck travel corridors.
