Tellico Plains,TN Ultimate DS Ride (by Python)

Ok Guys, here is the best in the area. This includes the famous Witt Road, the Singletrack trail 82, Ditney Mountain Road, Smith Mountain Road, Oswald Dome Loop,Finger Board Road, & Old Furance Road. This is the best loop I can come up with, and now includes the singletrack trail 82. This also has the waypoint of the singletrack trail 81 in it, but I haven't rode it yet to have the tracks. The Northern trail head of 81 is at N35 10.001 W84 23.920. Also included are nearby Points of Intrest that I include in all my track files. This track is 118 miles from Start to Finish. And is the best riding in the area. I put the track data in 2 track files, to keep them under 500 points (garmin limitation). Hope you guys enjoy! I'll post some pics from this route also in the 2nd msg.

I think I rode through some of the area today. I can't get the file to open. Any suggestions? Is this in the HWY 68 area. I remember passing Unicoi Mtn. We took Towee Creek from Reliance to 68, then up toward's Wauchessie and Bald River and down to the Tellico River. Just curious if I'm in the ballpark.

This route is near 68, starts on Witt Road, and follows it to the singletrack off Joebrown, then up to buck bald and and down, then Ditney/smith moutain, Lost creek, to reliance, then up Towee back to 68.

The file is standard .GPX, and should open with Mapsource, or any other .GPX compatible software (mapsend,etc.)

Thanks for the info, I tried Mapsource last night. I'll try again. If not I can alway's break out my maps. Looks like I've been all over it and probably done some. I usually take Joe Brown to Beaverdam and over to Tellico through the ORV park. Speaking of which, I saw last week in the paper where some conservation groups are suing the Forest Service to get the ORV Park closed. Since I can remember fishing the Tellico before silt took over, I have some serious mixed emotions about that one. I will say that it's funny nobody relates the clearcutting to the silt. Only the ORV Park. I also remember riding dirt bikes up there before the Crawlers tore everything up. Sorry for getting off the subject. Thanks again for the info.

We will be riding down to the Gap Thursday June 23rd through Sunday the 26th from central Indiana. We will be taking all back roads and no highways, as I think he will gain more experience from riding the back roads instead of the highway.
I have 2 weeks of hard trail experience in MOAB last year on various trails riding my '09 KLX250S as well as about 3 solid years of on road experience, and I road down to the Dragon last month on my GS, my son road the ATV along with me in MOAB last year. He has about one year of on road motorcycle experience on the KLX250S(70%), and on the KLR650(30%). He has only been off road on the ATV last year in MOAB.

When we get down there, we will be camping in the area as well. So we will have all of our gear with us. We will be riding the Dragon a few times and the foothill parkway next to it to get him acclimated and more comfortable with riding other than going straight. We will then be making our way to the Cherohala Parkway. After that, Saturday, I would like to hit some trails/fire roads. Not too advanced as I haven't been offroad on my GS and of course we will also have our panniers and gear. My son has never been offroad on a bike. I will be taking him to some limited offroad trails on the 250 near home in the next couple of days. Can anyone offer any advise on where to go. We would be happy to ride with any more experienced riders if in the area. I just don't want to get into a situation where we get stuck on a trail with a damaged bike, or broken bones. Thanks in advance for anyone's advise.
There are lots of great fire roads throughout the Cherokee NF. Hard to pick a bad one. My advice would be stick to the main fire roads that run near the river. They are beatiful. I would let him have fun first priority. He can learn to trail ride near the house, where he doesn't have the extra weight of luggage. Tellico MC Outfitters is a great place to get some free advice on the area. Good people!

118 mile Ultimate DS loop

To anyone that knows the area or that has done the loop,

I downloaded the GPS tracks that were posted in the first post for the Ultimate DS loop that begins in Tellico Plains and I'll be returning to Robbinsville, NC for our annual Deals Gap trip in May and was planning on doing the loop with a few other guys. We all have very DS capable bikes and are good riders, but my question is: How many opportunities are there for fuel along the way and what are the approximate amount of paved roads that are entailed in the 118 mile loop. Reason why I ask is, because I viewed the tracks in Google Earth to get an idea of what we'll be riding and I can't tell what's paved and what's not, and the only place that showed a gas station, was in Tellico Plains. Appreciate the info!

So how long did it take you too revive the bike? Did you stand it up on the back wheel and try to drain all the water out? What exactly did you do?

Any idea on the gas stations along the route, that I asked in the previous post?

stood the bike on the back tire. pulled the plug and pumped any water out of the crack case. drained carb. then had to push it off because of weak KTM factory battery. Now has Shorai Battery. No gas stations till you get to Telico. As far as I know.

We actually launched from a place between Turtle Town and Farner 35 07 36.25N
84 20 39.11W

We met the guy that ownes the shop and asked if we could leave our trucks and trailers and was glad to accomodate. Very nice guy!

We were staying in Blue Ridge Ga. at the time.

I highly recommend downloading Google Earth. You can see some of the POI's in the area, Buck Bald, Apalachia Dam, Cocker Creek Falls......

I recommend Crawford Campground if you are looking for a place to stay.

Wicked Trails still open

I'm considering riding the area in June with some fellow once-upon-a-time juvenille delinquents. A few questions, please:

1) Are these trails pretty much still open?

2) Are any permits required on any part of the route for street legal bikes?

3) Is "python ulitmate02" (presented here) the latest iteration of the routes and tracks?

4) In order to do trail 81, one would jump off Part 3 (track) and do an out and back?

5) There's mention of trail 82 . . . is trail 82 part of 'part 2' of the tracks?

6) The route is laid out for CW riding. Any downside of riding it CW one day, and CCW the next?

TIA, for any & all answers. BTW, will try to keep in mind the "how not to cross the creek" video!


Looks like a good way to spend a June day or two when the temp and humidity in Tallahassee are fliriting with 100. Much thanks to python for laying down the trax!
