The BFGoodrich® Tires Outstanding Trails program was established in 2006 to raise awareness for responsible use and preservation of off-road trails while providing aid in the trails’ conservation efforts. Through 2010, the Outstanding Trails program has recognized 24 off-road trails and 24 clubs across 16 states and two in Canada. The program has provided more than $90,000 in grants in support of the various trails conservation efforts.
Both Tread Lightly!® and UFWDA are non-profit organizations dedicated to responsible and ethical outdoor recreation. BFGoodrich Tires collaborated with these two groups to select the finest off-road trails, and will continue to work with these organizations on restoration and education initiatives.
The Indiana Four Wheel Drive Association (www.ifwda.com), in conjunction with the Boonie Riders and Bluegrass 4x4 (Kentucky club), nominated Trail 19 at Interlake SRA. On April 21st, BFGoodrich announced that this trial had been select as an Outstanding Trail for 2011!
On June 4th, National Trails Day, the Boonie Rides and Bluegrass 4x4 scheduled a work day and trail ride. We were joined by Marcus Baffoe-Bonnie (VP - North American Marketing for BFG) and Pat Brower (United Four Wheel Drive Assoc.). Marcus presented IFWDA and the Boonies with a plaque and a check for $4000. Our guests also pitched in for the cleanup, and went on a quick trail ride. Lunch was a pitch-in affair, with the grill run by Dave from Bill and Dave’s BBQ in Tell City, and much needed COLD drinks provided by IFWDA.
About Interlake and Trail 19
Trail 19 is located on the south-eastern area of the property, just north of the new parking area. Interlake SRA is former coal mine land straddling Pike and Warrick Counties, is now open as a multi-use recreational facility. Interlake is approximately 3550 acres of land with three separate eras of mining and reclamation. From steep rugged spoil banks to rolling hilly grasslands, man-made lakes and final cut strip pits, Interlake is a diverse array of topography and scenic views.
Trail 19 is one of the few trails in the area that can be attempted in a stock or mild vehicle. This two-track runs along one of the property’s many ridges, with several moderate climbs, small mud holes, and off-camber situations. Just enough to give the new four-wheeler a thrill, with a low risk of body damage! Volunteers have also marked out a new “more difficult” extension, dubbed “3 Stones” for the 3 car-sized boulders the trail traverses. This extension still needs cut in, some erosion control put in place, and properly marked. If you have not yet visited Interlake SRA, you need to put it on your list! Camping is available in nearby Lynnville, IN. Hotels and restaurants are just down the road near Evansville.
Special thanks to the people and groups that made this all happen, and will continue working to make MORE outstanding trails:
Rich Reisz (Boonies and IFWDA), Ryan Sweany (IFWDA), Marcus Baffoe-Bonnie (BFG), Pat Brower (UFWDA), Carman Jackson (Indiana DNR), Mike McLeod (Bluegrass 4x4), Tom Hartman (Friends of Interlake), and all of the Boonies and Bluegrass guys and gals!
Thanks for the info on the happenings Cjbilly. Cant wait to get down to Ilake. I have been wanting to sense I found out about it but gas is just insane. Its about a 2.5 hour drive one way for me so it will cost me around 100 or 150 for gas, lunch and other odds and ends that occur during a road trip. Still hope to get down there this summer. It sounds great.
Wow, this is great! I haven't been on jeepforum for a while and this forum is new to me, can't believe i never found this before! I live a few miles from Interlake and have been there a few times last summer. Last summer was my first summer of wheeling after finally getting my jeep ready. I really liked interlake and i thought last summer it was doing pretty good. Now, i am wondering if there is a new map cuz i really want to check out this new trail and parking lot!!! You can be sure i will be wheeling this weekend and probably the next weekend after finding this out.
As a matter of fact, my profile pic you see under my name is at Interlake from last summer and most of my youtube channel is dedicated to interlake as well, YeeHaw
Habitual MSC#2 in summer and MSC#4 in winter.
