Looks like it would be worth checking out. Looks like it's about the same distance as Jellico.

Looks like permits are $50 / calendar year, so we would need to hit it a couple times. And don't forget your helmet. Looks like they are required for ORVs. :confused:

I am pretty sure Terry Hardisty has been there before. I will ask him about it. I think it's the place he quit going to because it cost $50.00 and there is only one good day of riding there.

If you read the rules for Windrock, some of the trails we run there require a helmet. I guess I am glad I kept mine when I sold the quad.

Those are my pics from my most recent trips. I have alot more.

$50 season pass. Worth it even for a day ride, its 3hr drive for me, and is the best riding in that time frame hands down. Plus if you have an ATV you can use that on ALL other hatfield Mccoy trail systems Also, we start making trails next year on a NEW 45,000 acre trail system that will also be designed for trucks/jeeps

As for a helmet, thats to please the insurance folks. You can buy a hard shell skateboard helmet and that is fine. $20 at walmart.
