Looks like Elbow Rock Road is a good add on road for the Pulaski area...
Seems to usually have water at the south end...
A bit more challenging that Willie Woodhead in one section,
and still need to check the north end.

Pretty nasty puddle you found there. If it were me, I'd peel off to the left and blaze a trail around it, there appears to be some options. That's the beauty of the bike, goes between trees, quads don't.

Looks like you had a nice ride. This fall, I'd like to come up there on the 990 and ride around. NE corner is beautiful.

I may sign up for that and have my NETRA card already. Would like to try the Turkey Run, but not too sure about them.

The Turkey Run route sheet should have all the hero sections outlined and they should also include bypass directions.You can pick and choose your hero sections which they usually label with a difficullty scale 1-4. One being the easiest. Rumor has it there may be a Super Hero section.

if you ride that ktm there is no going back...once you sip the kool-aid it's over.

you start shopping for orange (or it's not-so-distant cousin blue).
