When is this Duramtown ride. I have a buddy across the road that just bought a P1K and we both are itching to ride. He will probably want to ride on a weekend but honestly at this point my kids only do school Tues and Thursdays so I would be open to any other days.
On a side note what is the closest place to ride an over 50" near Cumming GA that's open this time of year?

Downtown Atlanta for me is 2.5-3hrs there are a couple places in East Al we ride that are about half that for him. Not sure what Coalmont would be for him.

I am not familiar with anything in GA

Tell him to watch the North AL ride thread and he can join us anytime. That is unless he acts like you do and then we may have to say no!!

I took my younger son to Durham town last year for spring break. Our Pioneer was new and mostly stock and it was raining when we arrived. They had all of their tracks closed, so we cruised the trails and then went into their jeep parks. These pictures are of the "Slippery Nipple". It took us 45 minutes in a stock P1K5 as a newbie to conquer it without the use of the winch. I believe it is the toughest rock trail they have. You can youtube it with jeeps to see.
They have sxs trails and tracks that were not open due to the weather including some with I believe 35 or 40mph minimum speed. Probably not great in a pioneer when the sport guys are running. We rode our bikes the second day because they started opening up tracks. I wouldn't travel the 9 hours just for the pioneer to ride there. It's also expensive and restrictive (helmets, goggles and beverage choices) compared to much better areas closer.
I would definitely go back for the dirt bike riding though.
Just my $.02

I'm up near Dawsonville off the West side of Lake Lanier. I'll have to keep watch and see when you guys are getting together. Im looking forward to riding more down here.

Even that spot in Duramtown looked good but wouldnt be happy about wearing helmets all day.

You’ll def want to join us for a CoalMont trip,

We will be riding again soon, were going to do a family trip today but weather was supposed to be fairly bad. Ended up not being bad at all.

If there’s anything good to ride your way let us know.

Yeah I've been to prentiss Cooper a couple of times nice place, well maintained, beautiful views. Super easy good for relaxing family ride .It opens this month and there is no charge. You will meet Jeeps, ATVs, sxs, on the trails. I am going to try the ridges in Alabama tomorrow . It's pretty close and I have not been there just want to check it out and see what they have going on. Go to rider planet click on the state you want it will give info on all places and some pictures.

In my opinion Tenn. And Alabama have much better places to ride than we do here with the exception of Houston Valley it's a real good place, but the 50 inch deal keeps me away from there. I used to go to Winrock a lot and rent one of the little cabins for night I never had a bad time there. But I seem to busy haven't been in a while. I gotta make some changes and make more time like I used to.

The ridges are good for the family riders , not much challenging there unless you go looking for it . A good days worth of trails though .
