Looking for Riders! Bad Creek Project II! Sept 18-20

We're Putting The Band Back Together!



Yes Folks! It's that time again. Time for Bad Creek to open up to traffic other than hikers! I am planning a trip for Sept. 18-20th and
this will be the sign up thread. Eight of us ran this trail back in April and had a T-Total BLAST! See the link to the RR here:
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=455860
. Duke Power's Bad Creek Project is located in Oconee County, eight miles north of Salem, South Carolina.


Panoramic Pic taken at the edge of Lake Jocassee, our lunch stop for the day.

We can meet up at the Parking Lot at Duke Power's Bad Creek Project.

This trail is very exciting and not overly challenging. Big bikes like the KLR and smaller bikes like the Sherpa feel at home and knobbies are optional as seen on my KTM.


I am planning on camping at Keowee-Toxaway State Park. They have a really nice facility and the arrangement of campsites Bernard and
I stayed at last time would make a great group camp.
*Please, I don't mind folks having a beer after the ride, but if you plan on getting wasted, this isn't the ride for you.


Nice, soft, sand tent pads or plenty of trees for hangin' hammocks if you're like me.

Schedule is flexible so if the weekend of the 18th isn't good for most, we can move it to the 25-27th. I should be arriving around 7:00ish in the PM on Friday and will head back to Blenheim mid to late Sunday. There is plenty more riding available in the area from curvy blacktop, backcountry roads, and more trails like Horse Pasture Road. As seen here: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...e+pasture+road








So, What Say YOU??? Who's ready to ride Bad Creek II?? Wesley

I was hoping to pound a few beers during the ride so's I wouldn't drink so much at camp. Would that be okay?

Is it true that Major Lewis Redmond is going to be the grand marshall for the ride?

All joking aside. If you get over by the horsepasture way and are looking for a good place for lunch, yoders at meeces mill will be open on that Sat
http://www.scmills.com/yoders.php

Also they will be having a fiddling convention over at Haygood mill on sat also.

I'd like to make it up there this year, its been 2 years since I was up that way. If it was not so close to the sc shindig event I would be up for joining in.

Wesley-

There has been some more trails very similar discovered out near Bad Creek in Gorges State Park. There is about 35+- miles worth all very similar to Bad Creek. In fact, there is a gate at the end of one of the Gorges trails that corresponds to a gate at the end of a Bad Creek trail. Some folks around here were told by a forest ranger (who rides a KLR) to ride Gorges while you can, because he doesn't forsee it being opened for long. I will definitely try to make one of those weekends while it is open to ride.

AshevilleThumper, thanks for the info on Gorges trails. If you have any links, send'm my way via PM. I sure would like to extend Bad Creek a bit to make it a little longer day. Looking forward to riding with you again. Wes

Rob, should not be a problem with the MT90s. I was running Kenda K761s on the last trip and didn't have a problem at all.


Knobbies would be helpful but they are not required to get through this trail. Wes
