Anyone interested may want to check out Windrock Park in Oliver Springs, TN. The place is huge, with an on-site campground, and they rent Off Hwy vehicles for those who don't have or can't haul their own.

We've ridden all over. Some we like, some not so much. Here's my thoughts of places...

Windrock... too much rocks. I'm a trail and hill climber. Rock crawling is better in a jeep but even on 40's and Dana 60's, I don't like rock climbing even in a Jeep.

Spearhead... been there several times. One of my friends Chris, was one of the guys designing the trails in the new Spearhead trails. The place we've stayed at is by the 3 story Walmart, I forget the name. Those trails are like Hatfield McCoy trails. They're okay trails but more for family riding... kinda boring. Very friendly people. Can drive on the streets.

Hatfield McCoy... too boring, even the outlaw trails. Nice people. Love to drive on the roads.

Pickett... Definitely the prettiest place you'll ever ride, fun too.

Trailend... My favorite place, lots of trails, fantastic people, reasonable price for passes.

Brimstone... HATE THE PLACE, HATE THE PRICES, HATE THE OWNER... guy has pulled a shotgun on our group in order to stop to check to see if we had passes.

Burning Rock... Open, closed, open but under different name. Moderate trails but EXPENSIVE for a pass. No thanks.

In the last 7 or so years, the best riding we've done is Trailsend and KY.


Just food for thought...

Trails end is our favorite place to ride too. I don't have much time to ride lately.... I bought a new YXZ last July and it only has 20 hours on it. We took it up to Michigan and rode the Silver Lake sand dunes. One trip to Trails End and a trip with WEBEFINE to Black mountain KY. I will be interested if you get something planned, but I also just put my coach up for sale.... PS I also agree with you about the Brimstone management

The 3-story Walmart is in Grundy, VA. There are hundreds of miles of trail about 2 hours from Grundy, in Lee, Scott and Wise County.

Outlaw trails or part of a trail system?

Spearhead Trails covers a wide-array of area in the far Southwest Virginia. Grundy and the Coal Canyon trails (Grundy area) are just a small part of the Spearhead Trail system.

I can suggest Natural Tunnel State Park for a place to stay that is in the middle of the areas. It is water/electric only, but has wonderfully clean, newer bath houses. If you have a smaller RV, (access road is NOT big rig friendly) the Flag Rock Recreation area has some fabulous views with electric only, but with water and a dump station available.

Yes, some of the trails are "family friendly" and some are more adventurous.
