Hey yall, check out the events below! Yall oughta come down to one of them or sometime this year and ill be glad to take yall out on some trails youve not been on before.

Were gonna be making new trails all through 2013. Mostly blue and red trails. Will have some great stuff by our fall event.

By the way, Martys got two new houses that are SUPER nice and with all three rental houses he could accomodate yalls entire group if need be. And his place links right to the park as well as a ton of off park riding too. Check it out at www.martysatv.com

Anyway, Ronnie knows how to get up with me. If any or all of you decide you want to come down, give me a holler!

Check our website at www.wildernesstrailoffroadpark.net or on facebook at www.facebook.com/wildernesstrailoffroadpark



First up is our Bluegrass On The Mountain Festival on Saturday, May 18th. If you love the sweet sound of bluegrass, the thrill and excitement of trail riding, the feel of a springtime breeze in Appalachia, and the sight of a breath-taking mountain backdrop…you can’t miss this one. It will be headlined by bluegrass legend Ricky Skaggs with more acts to be announced soon! Stay tuned for more info! Bring your tent, fishing pole, fourwheeler and come down and spend a great weekend in the mountains with us.

Next up will be the Coal Country Off-Road Festival on the weekend of September 27-29. The event will feature a nationally acclaimed music act, vendor area, ATV events, and the famous Haunted Forest ATV Trail. We moved this event up three weeks because of the better chance for warmer weather. Last year, we had some very cold and very wet weather move in just a day after the event ended. To increase our odds for better weather we decided to move the event to the last weekend of September. We hope everyone will come and check out what we believe to be one of the premier off-road events in the country! Stay tuned for more info!

I have been looking at the map on there site http://wildernesstrailoffroadpark.net/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/WTOP-Park-2012-Jon-Edit.jpg

Do they have much other than dirt roads through the fields? Is the star the trail head? Marty's? Where is the "top of the mountain" where you can camp? Feeling a little confused.

Thanks for the help! Are helmets required in KY for SXS's? Stupid question I guess.

Its not a bad place to ride. The trails were alot better last fall than they were the fall before. But its still lacking challenging trails. The best trails are down close to Martys but thats a long ride from the event area. Jon and the other guys are doing a good job at it. They just need to leave the trails more natural in my opinion. Thats what makes brimstone so much fun

we do have some challenging trails but honestly we probably currently have a higher percentage of easier trails than challenging. our park has some of the best views youll find anywhere, and lots of ponds to fish and camp by. i like challenging stuff too, but still enjoy the park for what it is. theres enough challenging stuff to check out over a few days, but only about 20% or so of our trails are really challenging. there are some hill climbs on the south end of the hances side that are gnarly. they were steep enough that i put up additonal signs warning people they climbed them at their own risk.

we are currently in the process though of adding dozens of miles of new trails on the park thanks to a grant from yamaha, and they will mainly be blue and red trails.

now theres plenty of stuff here in bell county thats challenging, just not on the park. well know at tomorrow nights meeting whether anyone will be doing any guided rides or not.

weve done the ride from black mtn to here many times in the past but ive personally not done it in a few years.

thanks for the kind words from everyone. this is shaping up to be a really cool event that a lot are interested in. would love to see some of the SSXS Crew there.

Youre definitely right bud. Ive never promoted the park as something its not...thats the main complaint weve had is that we needed more challenging stuff. like i said i think this yamaha grant will help that. we already made one decent little red trail going down a wooded trail to trail 55 and are making a long wooded loop on the west end of the hances side.

now on the flip side, families with very young riders just cutting their teeth or some of the older crowd love the park for the fact it has a lot of easier trails. hope you can make it down this year bud!
