PostSubject: The Kentucky side of Pickett   Thu Mar 07, 2013 3:05 am

Has anybody rode the Kentucky side of Pickett lately? Was wondering if anything has changed with the "no trespassing" postings. I was there last Thanksgiving and did not encounter the postings until I got way up north on trail 1 towards the Dry Hollow Church. We came up from the Tennessee side to play it safe. The part of the trail I was on when I encountered them I think is actually a county road. And the way the little yellow signs was posted at the sides of the trail / road it seemed they was just telling you to not get off the trail / road and go into the woods. South of that area everything seemed business as usual. ATV riders and Jeeps.
Read a post on the Cumberland mudders forum and a guy mentioned running into signs and a big gate near the sand mines.

"Fri Feb 22, 2013 "
"2 weeks ago we started seeing signs on the other (ky) side of the sand mine. A big gate, too..."

Plan on riding there again in a few weeks for our bi annual Pickett trip.
Are you still able to get in there from the Sandwich Shop without getting into trouble?
Hoping that the car hauler and Edwards mountain is still accessible.
Anybody got any additional info on status?

We were down there a couple weeks ago. We parked at the sandwich shop and rode down into Tn. Didnt have any problems or see any signs. We went thru trail 16 (car hauler) too. A bunch of us met some of the people who own the area where the sand mine is. They let us out the gate one night when I broke my transmission.

There is an ATV bypass around that gate. As long as everyone stays on the road/bypass and doesn't abuse the adjacent property, the property owner is OK with that being an access.

When I come to houses, I slow down for dust and respect, never know when kids are out playing.

Thanks, that's really good to know. The last time I passed through there, I was scared of getting in trouble.
