Description: The 2000-acre Wears Bend Wildlife Management Area offers a number of interconnected, gently rolling dirt (red clay) roads that cross fields and woodlands. From the boat ramp area, a dirt road follows the gas pipeline for 2.1 miles to a junction with the main dirt road that leads 3 miles to a gate on the main highway. Spur trails lead out to the edge of the lake.
