I hadn't heard anything about the sandwich shop closing -- seems all the talk has been about losing some trails due to logging . . .

If logging does occur, it should not be a long-term thing, and trails should be open again in a matter of weeks, I should think . . .

Stopped by to see Carl today, Sandwich shop is closed for good, he has put out a box to pay (honor system) for parking...said he and his wife were hoping to sell house and move, said he would just let someone else worry with trying to keep trails open.

RIDE IS CANCELLED....No Need to go any further.


AllCon,

Can I look forward to support from the riders if I get new people involved in looking at this lease and the possibilities of keeping this area open? I am talking about people that have made this happen in the past and that strongly support the cause of ATVs and trail access?

Personally, I don't care how the lease is handled as long as access is secured.

To make a very long story short. What do the owners want?
Money? Someone to take over the lease and full responsibilities for all riders and hunters?
It seems to me like the real reason why they donít want atv's is still missing.
I will help any way I can.
At the mean time, can we still ride or itís a done deal. We will get arrested if we get caught?

PS: thanks to all the riders that are trying to make this happen. This is really a great sport for all and for the economy. I couldnt imagine what would happen if one place after another closes like in many other states.

I agree with cajunman, we need to know what can be done to continue to ride there and not have to worry about if we are breaking some sort of law. Every since I heard that the land had changed hands and the rumors started to fly about what was going to be done, I stopped parking at the church and started going in from the pickett side...I figured that I would ride the part that I knew was legal since it is part of the state park OHV trails and work my way back into Kentucky until I saw signs posted saying no riding. We were just there yesterday riding, there were several people out...each group we passed I asked them where they had parked and each one said on the pickett side so I assume everyone had the same idea as myself. As far as I know, the only area that I have seen so far that is posted with signs from the logging company saying no riding is the hill up from the church. Any infomation that could be passed on would be appreciated and if there is anything I can do to help this situation please let me know...we have at least 20 people up here in the Somerset area that ride there at least once or twice a month.

X2.
What can we do.
Planned on riding there next Sunday the 28th. Day after auction.
Would love to park at store, but probably not a good idea.

Well, TOHVA is willing to provide some guidance for us...but the first thing that is needed is one person to stand up and be willing to lead it. I don't know if that should be someone local but I would guess that would be helpful. I am gathering info that I can right now. If anyone has any of the information that has been collected previously that might be helpful.

Can we get a volunteer? (This is TENNESSEE right)

Not really sure why this should be a TOHVA issue since 90% of trails reside in KY, but if noone else steps up to help, I will offer...not sure if it matters that I live in KY.

I'm not really sure what "Not really sure why this should be a TOHVA issue" means. TOHVA isn't making this an "issue", they have offered guidance if someone will stand up and take the lead to try and solve this. Considering that it looks like this "issue" has stalled, I thought it was important enough to bring it up at our last meeting to see if those that have a whole lot more experience than I do could offer some suggestions on how to proceed.

While the property is in Ky....trail accesses are available from Tennessee and Tennessee riders access them from the Tennessee side.

Kentucky is welcome to handle it......please proceed....all us Tennessee boys are behind you all the way.

Kentucky seems to be throwing Adventure Tourism dollars around. Wilderness Off Road Park in Bell County got 9000 acres from the County and a bunch of money from Yamaha and Kentucky to maintain a FREE riding area. Just a thought.

Wow! I hope that is right. I love that area. Just scratching the surface of what is over there on the Ky side. I am already planning to go back with better lights and a rope and crawl back in that cave we found to see an underground waterfall! Going a couple weeks prior to learn some single rope techniques and some caving skills! Woo hoo!

Speaking of adventure tourism...........
I saw something I want to try in KY. Torrent Falls is a beautiful waterfall with a via ferratta set up. Looks like it would be plenty of challenge for this gal seeing as I am not a climber.

I think Kentucky has the right idea!

You would like the ferratta at Torrent - its pretty easy to more of a traverse though .
They will fully equip you and even guide it so no worries .
You will have a good time and be sure to Visit Miguels Pizza and possibly stay at Lago Lindas resort - with cabins or camping .
We have done maybe 20 or so Ferrattas all around europe they are great for her since shes not really a climber - The ones from world war 1 in Italy are the best as they are the for real thing - the italians used them to acess the mountain passes to keep the germans from advancing and their is so much history its amazing .
We did this one the day befor we flew home just a few weeks ago it was crazy beautiful

Thanks for the encouragement and the info! I doubt we'll get up there to see it til after the 1st of the new year and prolly when they reopen. We have some new friends up that way who ride so the logical thing to do would be plan a weekend of riding and climbing.

I say I'm not a climber, but that's a half truth. I USED to climb a lot. I still have my shoes, harness, chalk bag and gear. Its been a long time since I did it. I am confident I can handle a traverse and will like it. The ropes class and a via ferratta will be good motivation toward getting me back into the climbing mode. It would be good for me all around. Riding is great fun and a thrill, but I am hyperactive. Riding too much will only make my butt spread out more and does NOTHING for my fitness. I have to include hiking and other activities to be satisfied.
Will DEFINITELY remember to check out Miguels and Lago Lindas. That is one via ferratta with lots of pucker factor! Whoa Nelly! Thanks for sharing!
