I get down that way every so often, can you give more info ?

It's the Monday creek trail system, listed here:

http://waynenationalforest.com/wayneatv.htm#monday

We had a great time. Trails are hard but not too bad. I was on the XR and the KLR is bronciii's. Some sections were a bit interesting. I still have no idea how he made a few of the hill climbs in the dark. We got lost a few times, it's easy to miss some of the trail markers in the middle of the night.


Here's the map of the area. Basically we rode most of the trails in the bottom left the first night, so dark the whole time. Leaving we took the red trail all the way through and hit the road home from there. A food truck was parked in the middle of the red trail that morning with drinks and sandwiches, took a break there. The guy said he's usually there every weekend in the summer.

It would have been nice to have a third day there, I would have liked to ride the trials longer. Maybe take the red trail out, eat, ride that area, then head back through for more riding. Planning on going back at least once next summer.

Thanks for the info.I suspected that was the area.I rode most of the gravel forest roads all through there on a fully loaded gs, but have not got a chance to check out the trails yet.

The forest road themselves are fun through there. For us it was about 150 miles from home, took all day to get there because We were playing on the roads.

I wouldn't take a gs on the trails, might be a bit much. Then again I wouldn't take a stock klr with bald tires and camping gear either, and he made it.

All typos and misspellings blamed on my phone.

Do you still have to buy a trail permit if you have a registered bike with a liscence plate ?

Time to start ordering farkles! I'm going to start with the doo and the klx needle.
Great 1st post!
