The Appomattox-Buckingham State Forest has a beautiful new addition to the multiple use parking area on Francisco Road. The picnic shelter and tables are part of a project to create a new multiple use parking area for recreationists visiting the forest. Equestrians will be especially pleased with the area as it will feature pull through gravel parking, a corral, hitching posts, a mounting block, and available water. The area is central to ABSF's expansive trail system and will serve as a trailhead for the new Underground Line Trail which stretches 5 miles across the forest. Two barbeque grills are awaiting installation to accompany the picnic shelter. The shelter is available on a first come first serve basis and can hold up to 32 and is handicap accessible (though we need to add some compacted gravel to form a short path to the shelter). Please stop by and have a bite to eat while enjoying the beautiful forest!
