I was just curious if anyone has rode on these trails. Been watching some vids on YouTube ad it looks like it would be a fun ride. Plus it's only bout 2hrs away from home. Thanks for any info on these trails.

Yep, basically all mud and water holes. Some will devour your bike. Fairly technical riding getting in and out of holes. If you like that type of riding it is worth a visit for sure. BUT, you need to be careful about where you unload as it is not in the best part of town. Probably best place is off Covington pike and 240, bout 500 ft off of 240 going northeast on Covington Pike. Pull off on right side down the hill. Then ride back under Covington Pike and start exploring

Agreed^^^

I ride down there whenever I get the chance. You will be hard pressed to find a more technical place to ride. Alot of the trails are chewed up and it is a challenge getting around or through!! But, I love it!! Plenty of deep water, and the further you go west the better the trails get, if you are not into the technical side of riding. Another plus is, the interstate is always nearby, so if you run into trouble or need to leave quickly, you can easily ride the side of the interstate back to the truck. Hit me up if you ever wanna go, Ill show ya around!! :th_smiliebanana2:

Thanks for the input guys! I live in Savannah (bout 2hrs away) and I have a good friend that lives close enuf that he said we could unload at his house and ride there. I work shift work and I'm coming up on some long hrs... My next wknd off is gonna be sometime in May. We need to catch up with y'all and maybe y'all can show us around. We r all about the technical ride, but I am the only one set up for deeper stuff.

Dont really need to be set up for the deep stuff, not really a problem, can easily go around those usually. I rode a rancher 420 all around with no problem last year. I love riding at the creek up at Pickwick and along the power lines. Awesome rides. You ever ride there?

Btw, Dry Creek has been taken over by Tenn. wildlife resource agency... They told us last year as long as we "didn't act a fool" they wouldn't say anything... I never heard of them writing a ticket... I have heard that it would be different this year tho. We've been up there a couple time already and I haven't seen any wardens but who knows what they will do later on in the summer!

I heard the same thing about Dry Creek last year but had no problems the two times we went. Had a great time, hills, creeks, some mud, and a lake to boot.

I ran across this thread on the internet. I know it's a little over two years old, but hopefully someone will see this. Do any of you guy's still ride in the Memphis area? I moved to West Memphis, AR about 2 years ago and I have been wanting to get back into riding again. I don't really know too many places around here to ride unless you own land, and the few friends of mine that have ATV's never want to ride. They just use them for hunting. So I was just trying to find a group to ride with around here. Thanks in advance for any replies.

I'm with you bvick... I just got my outty a few months ago and I either ride on my land (not much) or with a buddy of mine on his huntin lease near Jackson, TN. I've never been to Pike, but would love to go and just don't have anybody that I know that goes. Also, since the days are getting longer I'd love to go some during the week. Don't know where to park either. I've heard of people parking at garden ridge.
