Looking for DS riding in Covington area

I'm visiting brother-in-law in Hot Springs. Couldn't bring my Husky TE this trip but plan to return in spring. I expect there is some excellent forest gravel and jeep trail riding in the area, and hope to hook up with some of you to ride with, or get GPX tracks from this spring/summer. Charleston, SC is my home, so it's all flat, sandy and boring in comparison. If any of you run Whadahala, Rick's Rondevous, etc., we may meet up then.

If y'all are ever in Charleston, SC area, hit the Weekly Rides near Charleston, SC thread, and we'll show you what we've got. Not much technical, but some great dirt road loops across West, Central and soon to be eastern parts of state. With 72 hours notice we should be able to hook you up with a guide from the GS & Tiger crowd to the DS/KLR/KTM guys and gals. 80/20 tires will work, but Hiedenau K60 & TKC80 for the big bikes and knobbies on the smaller ones are best. Our sand and gravel are simple, but the occasional section of thin goose grease mud will nearly guarantee an unscheduled CIT (close inspection of terrain)

If you find yourself on Hogback Ridge again, take the left at the powerline cutting and go down to to top of another great ADV road (something like Laurel Fork) that comes out on Kimberling Road about 3.5 miles East of where Hogback comes out. It's actually more fun going up the hill and has several creek crossings.

about Walker Mountain Rd (Forest Rd 206)

Just wanted to let anyone know who searches for this road/thread, that me and my son crossed the entire 14 mile length of this forestry road in his Jeep Wrangler (well scratched now- which he loves). It took us about 4 hours to cover it and that was with me taking lots of pics and also chainsawing a few branches/trees that were blocking the path. It is certainly a road that could possibly cause you to dump the bike a few times because of the rockiness of it and several very wet spots. I am at work now but will try to post some pics from home later tonight or later on this week. It is much more passable now, thanks to my chainsawing efforts and reaching out the passenger window snapping off branch after branch as we slowly inched thru it.
