I made a slight update to this file. Re-did the tracks, and made them more smoother. And made a map of the track.

Sweet! Just what I'm looking for.
Two 250's will be there in the Tellico Plains area next month, camping at Hunt's Lodge in TP.
This will be a test trip for the Sherpa which recently joined the barn, and in preparation for next year's TAT ride.

I'm returning to dirt after a few decades off (logging roads/trails in Maine) so it will be a progressive refresher for me, too.

Any suggestions on roads you have will be welcome.

Thats a real good route already.. Tho Witt Road maybe closed .. It was a month or so back.. not sure why, they were clearing some trees.. It may be open now. Even if it is closed, it still be worth it to go down to the closed part, as you get to go thru all the creek crossings before you get to the closed part. Its probably reopened by now.

I posted some area Gravel Roads/dirt roads in another .gpx orginally on TnAdvriders.com at this link,

http://www.smokymountainriders.com/viewtopic.php?t=537

I'll reatach the gpx here also..

Thanks!

I read through your other thread , too. *That* trail/route I think would be fantastic, perfect for us. Is this on your map?

THis looks like a great ride!

Im only down the Dragon way once a year with the rally car to ride such roads as you guys are. I would love to get on some more adventurous roads that have more water crossings and such!

These look like great roads and will see if i can drive/ride them in the spring when im down there.

Thanksgiving Ride

Do these trails require street licensed bikes? I could go either way, but my son would really like to take his KDX200 offroad bike. What are normal weather (wet, dry, etc. around Thanksgiving ) conditions this time of year?

Thanksgiving should be nice.. We took a cold spell this week tho with highs in the lower 50's.. that is cold to me, but warm to most.

Might be a tight fit in some places. I had to cock the front wheel sideways to fit in between a few trees in a spot or two. And tilted the bike sideways quite a bit while feathering the throttle/clutch to go under a fallen tree (was on a Sherpa).
