    I'm hoping to make this event with a group of hooligans. Any video out there of the trails?

    If you go to the regional thread, there is a video from 2 years ago in that first post...he was on one of the guided rides. http://advrider.com/index.php?threads/north-east-adventure-rally-july-20-22-2018-swnh.1274224/#post-

    Bob (@bobnoxious67) has a video of the short single track we have on property, I'll point him here. The actual 4x4 trails on site are pretty gnarly...a youtube search for "field and forest nh" or "Field & Forest" will give you an idea of that.

    However, there is a big variety of trail terrain available for this. Big bike stuff, small bike stuff, paved roads, etc.

    This is the single track right on property. The 4x4 trails are all available for use also, but some get quite gnarly.



    I am hoping to put together a video of my typical dualsport ride of the area in the spring.

    @Racer111v How are the tough trails there? Beta? Africa Twin? Both?
    And are you coming down for the Smokin Hole Rally this year?

    If you bring both and commit to 2-3 full days of riding with at least 1-2 days being self guided, you can certainly have fun bringing both if you already have the trailer room. Big bike ride is a blast on well suspended multi, and if you can handle a good big bike well you can likely ride it on all the self guided dualsport routes we have so far...and Goat guy’s Little Bike Hard guided rides are pretty badass, which r111 has been on most of

    The small bike ride is pretty serious. Use the Beta. Lots of fun, some fast fun stuff, and a few tech sections. JP is a good leader, ride you're own pace, and they will be waiting at the next intersection. I have used the DRZ400 in the past, but the YZ250 2T is a lot easier on me. Last year we split into two groups of around ten.
    Bobs "Big Bike Hard" would be great on the AT. It is challenging , I'm guessing along the line of Daves at Smokin Hole. Bob just got a KTM950 Super Enduro. It also matter what kind of spring we have. Last year there was a lot of water, looks like that will be the case this year, but who knows.
    I plan on being at Smokin Hole for sure.

    My wife and I will be there - are well behaved dogs allowed? Would it be a pain in the ass?

    Friendly and well behaved dogs are always welcome, just be sure to clean up after them...there are always poop bags in the bath house
