Everyone is invited to attend our 8th Turkey Trot to be held in Blackwater State Forest. No special permits are required. This is a NO-FEE ADV event. We will stage from Wilderness Landing like we did last year. We have picked this date to avoid conflicts with other events. Yes I know this is opening day for Bow Season. We will focus on new and improved Adventure routes since so many have moved up to bigger ADV bikes. Of course we will have multiple rides for DS bikes and a great route for street only. Make plans to attend ! here is video from last year <iframe width="640" height="360" src="" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> Turkey Trot 8 Wilderness Landing Black Water State Park Area OCTOBER 21 - 22 - 23 N 30 48.095 W 86 45.993 (careful with those coordinates – there are multiple formats out there - see different ones below) http://www.co.okaloosa.fl.us/pw/parks/wilderness https://www.here.com/directions/dri...1?map=30.81533,-86.76169,14,satellite_traffic Come out and join PAR for its annual gathering. Everyone is welcome. Even if you’re not riding come out and see what’s happening around the Pensacola area. This is a no fee event. Ride at your own risk. If you do not have adequate insurance I suggest you do NOT ride. There will be GPS tracks for each ride. We are still confirming routes and will publish routes when complete. All rides (except street ride) are short loops designed to get you back to campsite within ONE TANK. There is no food or gas available on these rides. Riders are encouraged to form their own small group and venture out for their own experience. Dual Sport North 1 – 52 miles of two track/dirt roads and very little pavement. This rides take you by Bear Lake and Hurricane Lake and over some of the best BW has to offer. Primitive Camping Only – There are BATHROOMS AND SHOWERS on site. Take out what you brought in. Plenty of camping space for large rigs (easy access). Trot Camping to the Right as you come in. This is a public site so there may be others there. Tent camping down close to river, hammock camping in special wooded area and then generator camping closer to the entrance. It will be obvious when you get there. Motels and everything else are in Crestview and Milton (exits 45 and 55 on interstate) each about 20 miles from campsite. Good food and gas in Baker FL about 10 miles from campsite. There are many ways to get to the site but the best way (meaning the most pavement) is from Norman Riley Road and then East on Corduroy Rd – improved dirt road for about 1 mile and then another mile down two lane to Wilderness Landing. There will be LARGE signs. Bring your own food and gas to the site. Dr. Philgood will cook breakfast on Saturday and lunch Saturday if there is interest. This worked pretty well last year. Tee Shirts (different design) will be available again this year! Check site and order early! Hope everyone can make it. Thanks to all who help make this even happen.
