View Full Version : TOTM: Favorite trail/park

08-02-2011, 11:15 PM
It's a hot, lazy summer month so I''m going with something easy and tech free. We'll pick back up next month with something more serious but for now this might be kinda fun.

What is your favorite trail, park or area to wheel? Post your favorite pic from each place.

Dave's Edit: Same rules apply here as Trip Reports too. Legal trails, treading lightly, etc.

My favorite place to wheel is Tie Rod canyon here in Vegas.

Or Evan's creek/Reiter pit in WA.

Don't have any pics of those places but YouTube has them.

Can we choose more than one?

Otter's -- Rausch Creek Offroad Park, Tremont, PA
It's probably one of the shorter trails at RC, but last time I ran it, I think I bottomed out on everything at least once except my oil pan.

Corum -- Big Dogs, Gore, VA
Big dogs has a bunch of trails similar to this -- with varying sizes of rocks. It's basically nothing but rocks straight uphill with a whole bunch of lines. The pic below is huge, so that's why it's a thumbnail.

Mason Jar -- Black Mountain (where GSSE is). It's not the hardest trail (well, at least some lines), but is a lot of fun and offers quite a few options for lines.

Rattle Rock -- Coal Creek OHV, Oliver Springs, TN. OK, so I only ran 1/4 of it and winched at least twice, but it was still a blast.

Life sucks when you have to roll out of your tent to this in the mornings :D. This is Barrett Lake trail, probably THE top trail not only for wheeling, but for pure enjoyment including the camping.

Unfortunately, I can't seem to find most my sweet wheelin pictures of it

The mall parking lot....seriously I haven't done any real wheeling since GSMW 2009. I always liked the orange trail at the Badlands though.

One of my favorite trails was lower 2 in tellico. I love the trails that are tecnical and long with many lines with plenty of options but none of the lines being easy. After that black mountain orv park is the shit

Harlan/Blk Mtn is by far my favorite park.. hard to pick a favorite trail though, they change constantly which is part of the reason its my favorite park. Easy trails can be hard and hard trails can be easy depending on conditions..

Otherwise I really like Rattlerock but I'm kinda meh on the rest of windrock..

Add me to the fans of Black Mountain list. My favorite is Mason Jar - http://i358.photobucket.com/albums/oo22/ryanshand/GSSE%20Harlan%20Ky%202010/IMG_2520.jpg

I'm sure part of the reason I like it so much is because it also inlcudes a fun and fast ride back to camp.

The Rubicon is real high on the list too.

KGB at Big Dogs. It's the perfect example of an East Coast trail to me. It's a loose/muddy climb that changes every time you run it. I've thrashed and struggled my way up it, I've been denied on it, I've thrown D60 parts on it, and I've walked it without even getting out. It depends on the day and how greasy the rocks are. Always fun.

I haven't been many places yet so currently its Daniels trail at Uwharrie NF. Nothing to hard at Uwharrie so I'm really looking forward to hitting some harder stuff with the new setup!

carnage canyon, bv colorado. i'll finish it someday.

Windrock OHV has always been a favorite just because of how close it is to me. Favorite trails include 3, 15, 16, lil mule, and Cadillac hill.

Here's a few from this weekend
Lil mule

Trail 16

Edit: just realized this thread was a TOTM from last year

I also wheel wharton quite frequently. The place goes on forever, but its a lot of the same stuff. Trail riding gets old when its nothing but flat trails and mud holes. Let me know if you know any other good places in the south/central NJ area.
