I went out with a few friends to scope out Horseshoe Bend OHV Park today.... didn't have time to trail ride, but Scott from the park took us out and showed us a lot of neat trails..... no way can you do all the trails in a day.... most of the trails are designed for the moderately built Jeep ... there is also plenty of stuff for the people who like to trail ride, There are about 6 rock bottom ravines to climb. Lots of hills, creeks, plus mud pits if you are into that.. I took some pics, but my camera died early into the day :-(
The group that I was with plans on going back on the 28th... if anyone would like to join us, send me a PM. We love to wheel with new people, all we ask is that you have tow points, a working CB, and be family friendly...
You guys/gals need to schedule a run to Horseshoe Bend OHV Park in Owenton, KY.. it has nice big areas in shade where you could grill, hang out, and trail ride. There are a couple ponds, but I don't know if fishing is allowed or not, never asked. I really haven't seen much of the trails at my group got hung up on Starmount Hollar for about 3 hours , but their appear to be several stock/near stock Jeep friendly trails. There are lots trails to explore, I just haven't been on them all yet.
A lot of Jeep / 4x4 Clubs have a Summer picnic, nice way to get families and S.O. involved in Jeep-n as well as a way to recruit new members, have a fundraiser for Club, and a way to get new Jeep owners/newbie's off road with their Jeep, all wrapped into a nice single event. If you are interested, I can give you details on how all this works.... I know if done correctly, it can be a very successful event.
Went to horseshoe this past weekend was rough there trails are wide at bottom then got real narrow toward top and would go to four wheeler size u have to be careful but I'm sure with time this will work its self out still a new park and to the question about fishing they do let u but it is catch and release only . Will be watching this forum for future ride like to meet up with some of u all
