Yea dan is correct but as i recall we found that some of the blue trails were harder than the red. But you will enjoy the riding as it offers the best of everything from easy to exterme. have fun and be safe.

The last time I was at Brimstone, they were in the process of removing the red spots from the blue trails. That was about three months ago and with all the rain lately... I really have no idea how things may have changed.

We just got back , it was great . We rode from one end to the other and we did the river trail thats kinda on out a bit.
Some blue trails were steep and hard and some red trails were ok just one tiny hard spot.
We didnt see many folk on either blue or red but tons of people on green trails.
It was by far the most over all technical area ive been.
You were right Dan i didnt run into anything quite as hard as trail 12 at WR but i ran into some off camber steep stuff that was do or die type riding.
I dont see how the RzR s series could get down some of the stuff we did without getting trashed.
But we did pick some far away trails that didnt look as if they got alot of traffic.
Great place with something for evryone.
I cant decide which is m favorite area .
We are plannin Hatfield McCoy next .
And , id love to meet up at Pickett with someone who knows it.
Ill post a few pics later on.

If you really like technical, then I would suggest New River Unit of the WMA.

Is this near the New river george in west virgina ?
Where everybody base jumps off the new river bridge ?

We did trails 25 , 27 and 23 and 25 , on the new river near Brim but they were not so bad.
Actually they were GREAT.
We went out to Griffy flower overlook and 75y . NO WAY.
I made some of 87y but Kim would have no part , at least i get excercise walking up every hill or down and fetching her bike, hey.

My favorite spots were new river, griffy overlooks and All around the un marked trails of 1 and 103 and 84 , 48.
Am i a wimp ?i would not go up the tiny tiny steep concrete hill on that washed out bridge on trail 84 ???
My front end was lifting and i didnt see no escape except concret landing .
Proably should have jut eased up alittle higer , it was only & feet tall .
So ????

The New River Unit of the North Cumberland Wildlfie Management Area is immediately S of Brimstone on T1. It requires a Special Land Use Permit from the state available at the Brimstone office. It is NOT a part of Windrock.

81 is just a typical red trail... with several techy challenges... nothing severe.

So does everybody use it to get to and from the office ?
I figured the rental folks would rent an atv and then drive trail 81.

Also whats up with that tiny concrete washed out bridge on trail 84.
Yeah it tiny but going up it on my 750 KQ seemed doable but asking for endo.
I more or less went up but my wife was shaking her head so we turned around.
Was we making a mountain out of a mole hill ? That bump never changes i recon since its all hard concrete.

Hehe... I don't know of anyone that has problems with it... we cross it both directions... Buck, and lady friend Quadkiller, Tnbrute, and wife Swampie all ride 750 Brutes... maybe it has changed since the last time we were crossed it.

So when you get to the little steep bit you just ease up it ?
For sure Dan if you gunned it alittle near the top wouldnt you endo ?
I need to ride with some expierenced riders badly, so far im learning all of it solo.

Yeah i could tell folks had been up it alot because of the rubber, im still noid after my wreck.

I never gun it on any steep climb... that's dangerous. I try to hold a steady throttle a bit higher than actually needed. That way I can let off a bit if needed and still have enough to make the climb.
