    Okay I need to work on my picture posting skills, but Jeff has some serious route creating skills. Jeff has put together a fantastic ride. I rode from Turkey Foot to Jellico and had a blast. I hope to ride the rest over the July 4th weekend.

    Thank you Jeff! You obviously put a lot of effort into this, I truly appreciate it. This is a must do for anyone even remotely close by.

    We are talking about this in a few weeks. Can it be done in 3-4 days?

    thanks

    It could be done in 4 if you don't stop to smell the roses.

    We are going to give 4 days and smelling roses a shot in two weeks. We will be on bigger ADV bikes so maybe we can pull it off.

    I look forward to riding a great trail. Thanks for your time.

    Actually it takes a smaller bike to get around it faster.

    Hi Jeff...

    Thank you very much for putting this together.

    I think we will bypass the hard areas this time. My F800GS is not a small bike by any means and the others are on 1200's. Maybe next time Ill bring a smaller bike.

    Since we only have Friday - Monday and transit time to get to the KAT, we mostly likely will have to bail off the trail and pound some pavement home. Do you have any areas that are "must see"?

    Where do you suggest we start from? I am thinking we could get on the KAT on the far west portion around Jamestown then see where we end up on Monday afternoon. But not sure if we would be missing some of the better areas. Or we could start in Slade and see if we make it around going clockwise?

    Thanks for the advice!

    My favorite is the whole western section (Daniel Boone Forest) as this has the least amount of pavement. The eastern section has higher elevation changes and the best views.

    Thanks for putting this together.

    I like dirt and adventure more than twisties and views. Before I go digging into the vehicle use maps, I was wondering if there's enough routes to do a mostly-unpaved loop of Daniel Boone Forest?

    It would be hard to make a dirt only loop of the DB since it's a pretty narrow strip of land but I can get you from one end to the other. The questions is how hard do you want it? :evil

    No problem. I can always ride the same strip both ways. :D

    Planning on riding some of this next week. Only have 3 days, so I'm cutting out the hard sections, and starting in Jellico and riding the western loop back around to Stanton, then scuttling back up to Cincy. Question about camping... Planning on tenting it and researched DB forest, they call it dispersion camping and as long as you are on public land 100 yards from roads, lakes, etc you are good to go. Planning on camping at least one night somewhere north of Laurel River Lake where it looks like according to google maps very little human habitation exists. That sound about right?
