Looking for trails between Atl & Knoxville

Hey guys-I am coming in from Colorado to ride in the south but can't seem to find any OHV areas that are open. I wanted to ride up at Diamondback but it seems they are closed. Does anyone have any ideas on a place I can find some harescramble-like trails between Atl and Knoxville? We did Coal Creek a while ago and it was awesome but still a few hours from Atl. My buddy is in Knox and I am going to be in Atl so we are looking for something in between. Thanks in advance.

Er, unfortunately both TWO and Whissenhunt are both closed for the winter right now. (What a winter...65F here today!).

You may have to get a login to access KTMtalk, but it does not cost anything and is a good resource for information. You also do not have to own a KTM to register. If you post on here that you are looking for a place to ride, and you will usually get invitations to join others, even if it is on private land. My friend (Cahoona) rides somewhere almost every weekend.

And check the regional racing organization. Check the race schedule for events. I think there are couple of national events coming in the next couple of months. National Enduro and GNCC events.

Another source for information. Some of the GOR members also post rides on KTMtalk.

It is not between Knox and Atl, but The Ridge has some really good places to ride with a good mix of enduro type trails and some open MX tracks.

Highland Park is a new place that struggled with local opposition in order to open. Not sure if it is the same person, but I think the person starting this place also owned Marietta Motorsports, and is an accomplished road racer.

Hope this helps.

Look for other rides. They have a list of dual sport rides from mild to wild. Haven't hit them up - yet.

Windrock is the wrong way, but, it has a mass of people there every weekend in jeeps and 4 wheelers.
When all else fails, read the directions.

Thanks guys

Thanks a ton for the suggestions. All the GA ohv places are closed but we ended up at Windrock. Awesome, sloppy trails and all covered in snow and ice. The coldest I have ever ridden but huge fun...right up until my buddy filled his boots with ice water. I am hoping to get out to Highland while here. Thanks again.

it was my understanding that Locust Stake over near Clayton stays open year round,..but I could be wrong on that. Tellico ORV is open year round in Murphy, NC. However there isnt much for single track or hare scramble type riding there, alot of slower speed rocky technical sections though. depends on what youre riding. I wouldnt do a GS there,...but a thumper or trials bike is fun to ride there.
Just some dude on the internet,..
