look up sundquist wildlife management area ( name change etc a couple years ago)

there are enough trails/roads that you can explore for years, I think there are approximately 1.2 milloin acres that are TVA coal reserve with the surface rights held by TWRA, you need a ORV permit OR a hunting licence with a small game WMA permit (cheaper way to go)

the area TWRA trys to send all the ORV is off the I-75 Huntsville exit go east (past the Giant cross and adult store) turn left on Flats road, there are several parking areas and I think a sign with regs etc. during deer season you are required to wear blaze orange.

If you can decifer the right roads you could start at Windrock in Oliver Springs and ride all the way to Middlesbourough KY an dirt

as a semi interesting spot, if you miss the turn on Flats road you will come to a large paved area with lots of ruins and party spots that was an amusement park called Coal Town.

Thanks for the update guys.
That's pretty interesting about Coal Town.
I saw it on the satellite view. I'll have to go check it out when we go.

The sections I've ridden were like Hickman county but much dustier. There are some technical spots and the mud holes are DEEP!

Lots of wildlife there too...beaver, turkeys, deer, elk. And plenty of big-ass rattlesnakes.

I haven't been there in awhile myself been meaning to go back...heard you can buy trail maps at the store there at exit 141.
