I'm In. Sign me up!! I am less than 30 miles from the Laurel Fork Campground. Sounds like it would be a fun trip.

I just got finished looking at the photos of the 2011 trip. Looks like it was fun. Were there any off road trails that you guys went on? It looks like most of it was road travel.

Thanks
Greebe

All the off pavement riding is Forest Service or County roads.
There are no legal OHV trails in the Monongahela NF.

Ahh pooo.... I have noticed that there are not many trails around these parts. There is one trail up Rich Mountain that is fun to ride. If people are going to Elkins again it would be just a bit further. It is about a 20 minute ride out of Elkins. I might be a little much for some people, but it is fun none the less. I will try to find some pictures.

I may need you to be my LF scout in the spring for campground conditions.

I'll send you a PM this afternoon, so we can talk.

I rode by Buffalo Lake on Sunday. Most of the lake's surface was frozen, as were my fingers. I need some heated gloves! I didn't have a thermometer but I'd estimate it was high 10s to low 20s at the top of the mountain on 28. The bike is going back in the garage until it's warmer.
