A couple of weekends ago we decided to try this place out. Man, was it worth it. They have 200 miles of trails on 5,000 acres. It stands for “North Alabama Trail Riders Association” but is in Westpoint, TN. You can get a family yearly membership for $60 (kids under 18 are free) or you can buy a daily pass ($15 for driver & $10 for passenger). It was about a 150 mile drive for us so not too bad. They have easy, medium, & tough trails. It has really nice scenery as well…creeks & small waterfalls. There is plenty of mud & a bunch of awesome hills as you will see in the video I will leave in this post for you all to see. Head on over to my YouTube channel (FlyHighDef) to check out Part 2 of the trip…it shows more of the trails for you to see. Thanks for stopping by.
Back on October the 21st a small group of us went to a place that was new to us for a huge event. It’s called “Mudslangers” & is just inside Houston, MS. It’s a little over 800 acres & some of the best maintained trails we have ridden. We will for sure go back…easy drive too, only 134 miles from our house. They are open from March til October every other weekend. It has nice camping area, plenty of mud, huge water hole to play in, & long, steep, curvy hills that are kept in great shape. Check em out next season if you get a chance, you will love it.
From what I heard, it was an old family hunting club. They decided to have an event (because you know hunters have atv’s) & they made so much money they turned it into an atv park. Click the link below for the video. It was an event so you will see some trucks in the bounty hole & towards the end you will see the awesome trails they have. Enjoy & catch you all soon.
This past Saturday five groups of us (two sxs’ & three atv’s) went to Bikini Bottoms in Dyersburg, TN to ride & check it out. It’s really a nice place for mudding, cool scenery (a river, a lake, & even a swamp with cypress trees), but just not quite big enough to go all the time (it’s about 70 miles from us). It was a nice change & we had a great time with some new friends. They even have an awesome zip line that you can ride. They host big hill climbing events too.
I wouldn’t drive too far to get to it, but if you live pretty close to Dyersburg & haven’t been, it’s nice & has plenty of mud (we even got the Highlifter stuck) & not too tough of trails. They have a shower house & a water hose hooked up to kinda clean your ride off before you leave. It costs $10/person & they are open from 10:00 am – 7:00 pm on weekends. Gonna leave you with with one of the videos I put together from there that was all IPhone 7 Plus footage. Hope you enjoy.
Ok, a little over a year ago when my wife & I got married she found this awesome & beautiful place for us to go on our honeymoon & go riding. Yep, she’s that awesome…found the place & wanted to go (her idea). It is 40 miles north of Knoxville, Tn & is called Ride Royal Blue. We were there for five days & had an awesome time on our 4-wheeler. Two weekends ago (8th-12th) we decided to go back. We were able to take our two oldest boys this time because we now have two sxs’ (got rid of the 4-wheeler). There is basically 200,000 acres & 600 miles of trails that are on TWRA land & three campgrounds on this land. Royal Blue , Trail’s End Campground , & Sunquist. Each have cabins to rent, rv sites, & tent sites. You can buy 1 permit & ride all three of these. There is also Wind rock & Brimstone , however these two are private & require individual permits to ride them.
This time we stayed for 4 days at Trail’s End. We rode the trails there all day on Friday & then on Saturday we loaded up & drove over to Royal Blue for the day. We haven’t ridden the other three, but love Royal Blue & Trail’s End. The scenery is just beautiful & the trails are as tough as you want or easy as you want. You have to make plans to get to one of these places. The trail’s are all numbered & marked, plus you can get a free map of the trails to follow. Trust me, it is well worth the trip & I know you will enjoy it. Gonna leave you with the first video I made from our footage from the day at Royal Blue. Check my channel for the one at Trail’s End & will be getting up more footage from both real soon. Catch you real soon.
Ok, so we picked up a new ride yesterday. We have decided to sell the 4-wheeler & get another sxs so it will be safer & easier for the kids to start going with us. My wife’s two boys live with us & my youngest two kids are with us every other weekend. Now we can alternate taking them & the good thing is that my wife & I can now ride every weekend instead of just twice a month. I feel so much more at ease knowing the kids will each have their own seat & seatbelts, plus navigating big ruts will be so much easier for them. We have the 2016 1000 Highlifter Edition & now yesterday I picked up our new 2017 900S RZR for the kids.
Looking forward to taking the boys this weekend & teaching them & showing them some stuff so this can become a family adventure that will build great memories for them. Have to get them ready because we are taking a 4-day trip up to Trail’s End Campground next month. Gonna be a great time.
Our local riding spot here where we live is called “Sugar Creek Trails”. It’s a cool spot a man owns (about 500 acres) & he has let people ride out there like 30 years. It’s right outside of Memphis about 30 miles in Drummonds, TN. We ride here the most because it’s about the best around here & the closest to us. Once a year in May, they host an annual “Mud Bog” event which brings out all kinds of atv’s, sxs’s, trucks, jeeps, & even some monster trucks. Last year was mine & my wife’s 1st time out there to this event & we couldn’t believe how big it was. So, this past Saturday the 13th we went back again. Had a really good time & hope you enjoy the footage I got.
