Yep I knew that. I would have to say that a real conservative estimate is that 80% of the trail riding up there is on Private Property. Might be higher than that.

Yeah, we know its all Private Property. There use to be a lot more riding there about 10 years ago than there is now. I would say it might be more than 80% Rooster if I was to guess at it. As far as nice trail riding...I think Pickett is the nicest place to ride. Then I like Brimstone a lot as well.

The rep for Wayne Lumber has stated they would be open to leasing the property that everyone rides for off-road use.....just like they lease the one tract for hunting. He never mentioned clear cutting either. He was very adamant about ATVs staying off the hunting lease though. He didn't stutter a bit when he told me that.

As for the guy that owns the cabin talked about earlier....he told me as a teen that I was welcome to ride his trails on two conditions. If it was really really muddy, stay off. If a gate was closed, it was closed for a reason. Don't go around it or through it, come back another time. Other than that, have a blast and be careful. That stuck with me and that's why I haven't ridden up there since his daughter said he had to close things down.

That's how the area was for years....land owners let you ride as long as you were respectful and many times, you would meet them out on the trails. Times and owners have changed. I just hope my kids can grow up riding some of the same trails I did as a kid.

I agree, if the Gates are closed I won't go around them. Just outta respect. I'm like you, I hope it stays open for years to come. I remember the first time I rode out there. I had my 1994 Bayou 300 4x4...lol. It was just a few months old. Wished I still had it too, man that thing was tough. I went with some of my friends from school. One of the boys Dad's took us out there. The trails back then wasn't nothing like they are now. I started seeing more traffic out there about 6-7 years ago. I think thats when it picked up a lot. I use to see a guy out there all the time that had a 185 Honda 3-Wheeler... Cool I wonder what ever happen to that old guy? Did you ever seen him out there riding? It was probably around 96'- 2002 I use to seen him almost every time we rode out there. He would stop and talk forever. Pretty cool guy. He sure knew his way around. Well...thats it for the memory lane trip. Razz

Don't Wayne Lumber company pretty much owned all if out there now?

There aint no gate that find any where near that cabin and it didnt look like anyone had been around the cabin very much ....
The folks across from Hancock grocery were very friendly as welll as the new owner of the house behind hancock Grocery - Supposedly you can stop in that house and they willl fix you sandwiches and stuff ....Every local we met was real, nice ....

On a side note i saw two guys - No helmets - riding on the hwy way about 50 MPH right near Lees BP station ouside of Brimstone - wow - i thought that was pushing it .
Anyhow they were right in the middle of the lane hauling it ....

I think that they are both great riding spots. They each have something to offer. You don't find sandstone at Brimstone that is at Pickett. But in Scott County you can ride the county roads without having to worry about breaking the law. Also the layout of the land is total different at Brimstone vs Pickett. I do like Brimstone for the fact that we can go from there all the way to Windrock. I think that someday they all will get together and work out a deal for there is alot to gain.

Now wouldn't that be something. A force to reckon with.

One thing about it....we have a lot of options in a relatively small geographical area. I've read other forums about folks driving for hours and hours for a few miles of trails and they're happy to do it. I can be at Pickett in 20min and Brimstone or Windrock in a little over an hour. We are lucky here in Kentucky and Tennessee.


And darkstar, I hope you weren't thinking I was implying the locals aren't friendly. Most folks around here ride and have no problem with riders. My point is that things aren't as wide open as they used to be....many great trails are now blocked.
