AWESOME!!!

Let us know how the trails are at the different locations and which trail system you liked the best.

Are you able to cover all the trails in just a few days? How far between each place?What are your accommodations like?

Sorry about all the questions, but a bunch of us from north of the border are thinking of making the 10+ hour drive and spend a few days or a week there if we have to.:)

Looks like your new rear bar/rack came in handy with the storage bag you have with it.:thumbsup:

I'm surprised it's not a total mud hole, maybe they haven't gotten as much rain as Ohio, we have nothing but swamps here right now.

how did you like 93 and 95? I think those r my favorite. Theres also a really fast more level trail that heads through a valley. I think it might be 35. Give us an update.

Never been to the Pinnacle creek or Indian ridge trails yet. Look forward to a review of how they compare to the rest of the trail systems.

Will do, so far RockHouse has lived up to its name. It was very rocky but what was most impressive was the elevation changes. Man there were crazy inclines that kept on going, 150+ yrd rocky as hell incline (2nd gear 3/4 throttle) switchback to another 150+yrd incline (still rocky) and that just kept going until I came face to face with a commander coming down with a blown front tire. Messed my rythm all up :mad:
So far we stayed at Fox ATV Lodge in Gilbert and its a nice calm place to relax with a good location. Kinda small, but very clean and good people. It has in house washer and dry with kitchen and all that. Did I mention good people? Right on the river and 1.3 miles from the trailhead....but you get to ride on the street so no big deal. Bottom line, if you decide to make the trip let me know because I would do most anything to ride here again..... I cant say that on RS cause those guys will take it straight to the gutter :lol:

PAT! You have NO idea how much we wanted to come ride in charleston with you man. We are going to make it happen some time.

how did you like 93 and 95? I think those r my favorite. Theres also a really fast more level trail that heads through a valley. I think it might be 35. Give us an update.
We didnt ride 93 or 95. The first day was only a half day and we didnt want to break anything in the first 4 hours. We were going to save that for monday. So Monday we rode the long way to Mann and were planning to hit all the extreme stuff on the way back until the bottom dropped out. They had crap blowing everywhere with 60+ mile winds. I had no idea it could get that bad in the mountains. we did ride most of the black trails, but for some reason the intermediate trails seemed even harder.
35 was a great time but my absolute favortive trail at Rockhouse was 16. I was 3rd-4th drifting corners and it was just perfect for me, then the stairstep jumps going up hill to top it off.
I was at one with my Raptor.

We were there one year, at the top of the mountain and it started raining like Jesus was coming. Lighting was crashing. We made a b-line home. Going down some of those decents you mentioned, bowling ball sized rocks were passing us in a mud slide. there was no braking, just gas and go. Scared as hell. Funniest thing was this guy larry who was the slowest all day made to the street 1st. He was nearly crying.
