OHV Park

Has anybody been to 'Outdoorsman' OHV Park in Martinsville VA?

I have an 09 KLR 650 and am looking for a park with a lot of woods trails and this place seams to be the closest (From Raleigh) with the most trail mileage.

Can the KLR handle the most of these trails or is it set up more for pure dirtbikes?

Or is Brown Mtn OHV park ok to drag the KLR through?

Preciatchya!

Been there once a few years ago. It's mainly a quad place and it was getting beat to hell at that time. From what I've heard, it's in pretty rough shape. And that's from a friend that only rides quads.

You might want to take a look at Outback ATV Park in Laurinburg, NC.

Most of the OutBack is alittle tight for a KLR.

ncTRAILBOSS probably knows Outback better than anyone, but with that being said, whenever I want to get back on the KTM after extended periods of not riding dirt, Outback is the first place I think of. There is definitely some tight stuff, but there is a lot of much more wide open stuff too. It's much more sandy than any of the other potential spots in the area which means it holds up to bad weather very well. Would I want to ride all of it on a KLR? Nope. Would I be able to spend a day riding a KLR there? Easily.

Other spots in the area that I can think of and how they'd be on a KLR:

NCMP: too technical
Brushy Mountain: WAY too technical
Outdoorsman: wasted
Rivers Edge: maybe, but probably not enough KLR friendly terrain to make it worthwhile
TNT: maybe, but I don't think I'd make the trip from Raleigh to ride it.

I can't speak about Brown Mountain or Uwharrie.

Old tread, I know.

Most of Uwharrie is very enjoyable, even on a KLR. If you want to, there are a few sections that will probably be challenging.
Well worth the $5.

Do not go when it is wet.

Uwharrie

Uwharrie will beat the crap out of a newer style KLR as will most of the trails around here. Eventually it will end up in a pile of rocks.

I don't know of anyplace to take that kind of bike. The FS roads around Uwharrie are OK to ride as well as some of the twisty roads getting there.

The KLR would like them a lot

Low water bridge road, Love Joy,Flint Hill Rd., are all good. FS roads in the park are good KLR riding too.

Chicken at Eldorado Outpost.

Perfect day!
