Slade, Ky

We are renting a cabin near Red River Gorge and Natural Bridge.
Since the wife is letting the kids bring friends, we will be bringing two cars down. Since my Jeep is my Daily Driver, I'll be bringing that.

Not looking for any hardcore rock crawling, but are there any logging roads or two tracks that are legal and scenic?

Most likely would be the only vehicle unless I met up with others down there.
And I'll be needing to drive the 6 hours back home at the end of the week!

Thanks

Paul

Ck with the local guys at the firehouse....supposedly they can point you in the direction of some trails. People at the stations in town are clueless.

Not sure if you went yet as you didn't give a date. If you haven't pm me and I'll give you some directions.
Not a wise decision to wheel alone though.

Agreed with deadeye. You can very easily get lost back in there and some trails that look easy can turn kind of nasty really quick, especially if you're running open. There's plenty of places that are still all on public land and legal to ride though. All of the area is scenic. It's one of the prettiest places you'll ever ride.

Yep, GPS pays dividends. It can at least point you in the right direction! I guess they just don't advertise wheeling around there, as I know livingston got closed due to people rashing the trails and making their own way.
