Question Winter single track rides? Where to go?

Hey does anyone have a good recommendation for single track or dual sport riding areas for a northerner to visit in the winter? planning a trip for this winter (late Jan/Feb) to do some trail riding where it's a little warmer than Michigan. Looking for actual motorcycle trails and not ATV/Jeep trails. Any suggestions? Highland Park in GA. looks to be the best iv's seen so far? Thanks!!!

highland park is where most of the yankees I know come south to ride. About the same distance the other side of Atlanta is Durhamtown Plantation. Not as much good singletrack but still enough to keep you busy, plus a lot of just fun trails, MX tracks and just stuff to go play on. Worth a couple of days as well.

North GA has Moto Mountain. not as well marked/maintained, but if you are in the area it's very good.

Have heard lots about Coal Creek in TN I think? over towards Birmingham is Minooka or something, and Top Trails near Talladega if you wanted to swing by Barber Motorsports Park/Museum but still get some riding in...

Although Jan/Feb may not be warm enough yet here in WV.

i'm going to Atlanta for a conference next month. It looks like it might be worth it to bring a moto along... lots of listings here:

Looks like whissenhunt orv is along my route, is highland the best single track out of those close to Atlanta?

whissy is decent but as per the state ORV areas the trails are all two way trails and can be busy on the weekends.

the three big "private" riding areas are usually a bit more bike friendly (highland park, durhamtown plantation and moto mountain). at Highland Park you don't even have to bring your own bike, just rent one of their new KTM's. :)

I'm thinking that highland park would be fun this Sunday. I need to decide whether to bring a bike or rent. Hmmm

I prefer not to ride alone but I assume there will be other enthusiasts out on the weekend.

there should be plenty of folks to ride with. the rental bikes are in very good condition, it's a good chance to try something different depending upon what you ride. if you ride a 2 stroke, try out a four stroke and so on. He usually uses it as much as a demo ride for folks thinking of buying a new bike vs. just a rental program. it's nice to just show up, get your bike, ride all day, don't have to worry about gas, tires, washing the bike, trailering, etc. Just show up, ride all day, drop the bike off at the store and hit the road home. :)
