I'm all for riding back and snapping another pic. Besides, on the USDA.gov webpage, there's a map that shows a motorcycle trail somewhere back there. I'd like to find it if it's still open. Just to find some extra time now.

Thanks. I've got a similar map showing that trail. I've rode the gravel roads through there a couple times, but haven't noticed that trail. Seems like every time you look left or right, there is a gate blocking every trail. Do you know if it is even open?

I've never seen it or Trail 82 ever closed. I've done trail maintenance on both with Mike Doser of Tellico Motorcycle Outfitters in Tellico Plains. He would know for sure. As a matter of fact, there are no gates on the single track motorcycle trails.

Cool, thanks. Might have to go look this weekend, weather permitting.

Really wanted to get it this weekend just not enough time. Rode Citico instead, got some funny looks riding by the 4 wheel drives in the snow on the DR. A National Geographic Map is very detailed and will show every trail road etc. Seems most of the side roads are gated shut except for the main routes. There is a sign for trail 81 off of the Smith Mtn Road (aka 80)

Did you all notice how close the Western NC tag is to ours? Both could be grabbed on the same trip :)

Tag Ruling

To keep the game moving I'm okay with the grab if ccrider72 is although I suspect rule #1 might have been broken and rule #2 was bent a little bit. All I ask for is that hillbillyhonda follow this part of rule #4 TAG MUST BE FINDABLE.

Yep I have placed the western NC tag about 4 miles from the TN State line and I have placed the North GA tag fairly close to TN at Reregulation Dam next to Carters Lake and I have placed the Appalachian Tag up in Lynch Kentucky also fairly close to TN

How about we leave it open? If CCrider72 or any other rider wants to grab the tag, then that's fine. If nobody else gets it before I can make it back, then I will grab it with a new picture, and select the next tag.

I wasn't sure how the game was played at first, I just knew where that tag was.

That seems fair. RUSTINPEACE's tag stands as current.

East Tennessee Tag-O-Rama!

Whatever you all decide will be fine by me. I won't be grabbing the Appalachia tag anytime soon so don't hold it open on my account. Bring on longer days and warmer weather!

Amen to that. I'm over winter.


Is there a running thread for getting together to ride in this area? Similar to the Chattanooga and MidTN threads?
