Sheez. Shame on me, I never put a notice in the first post. I'll get to it now!

I'm in for the street ride. My preference would be for Saturday so I would be fresher for the Sunday dual sport ride.

I can provide gpx tracks too

I am a local, I am from and live in Walton, about 10 miles away. Saturday is the finale of the Delaware County Fair, so I probably won't be able to make this year's ride.

I don't think riding on private land is a great idea, fortunately there are a fair number of seasonal roads and DEC forest roads that double as snowmobile trails in the winter.

You can get a pretty good overview of the DEC roads by downloading the "DEC ROADS".kmz file from the DEC's web site http://www.dec.ny.gov/geodata/ptk

Use Google Earth to browse the kmz file.

I have also found the Delaware count tax map useful to determine if an abandoned road is public or private. That web site is here http://www.giswebhost.org/delaware/

I have also posted some tracks on this web site here http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=721895

and here
http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=891593

Have fun and be safe! Be aware that this year's date coincides with the last day of the fair and that traffic on the feeder roads to Walton will be several times normal.

Thank you for the info! Definitely avoiding Walton on Saturday.

Although I've got a KTM 400 I've got dual purpose tires on it at the moment, so this is probably my best bet.

Good to know that there will be a range of options for rides.
Thanks for stepping up.

I will most likely be preriding on Wednesday if anyone would like to come along.

reasons to attend

the only ride I've attended with it's own BEER*!


it's a very open group. you are welcome to bring your companion, regardless of gender or state of existence. we don't judge. usually.


use of acellerants to help the fire along is always encouraged!


* beer availability is not guaranteed and is subject to conditions which are not fully defined or understood!

I'm not into beer.
I think people that "have relations" with stuffed bananas are strange.
And senior citizen pyros are well just wacked.

But I do like this event

Yeah, was super bummed when the labels didn't make the trip last year. Totally F'ed. Bru was decent, though.

It was good!

That reminds me, I still need to get a good label for posterity.

Campground Map Link

Peaceful Valley Campground
Website looks great.
I'll be tenting it, but Google reviewer raised points that might be issues for some.
Anyone visited since the most recent reviewer to confirm, or check in with management?
Do they know they are about to be descended upon by hoards of ADV riders?
